We've been using ChatGPT a LOT lately for search. While Google can be very accurate, if you want to iterate on existing search terms, it's not so effective. That is where ChatGPT comes in handy.

Today we asked ChatGPT to suggest a list of business books that discuss business innovation, then we asked it to iterate the list based on a second set of criteria to determine which books discussed creating an innovation lab.

Here is our first prompt:

"Can you give me a list of the best business books about innovating your company and strategic positioning for the future?" 

Here's what ChatGPT had to say: 

Certainly, here is a list of some of the best business books that can help you innovate your company and position it strategically for the future. Some of these were released before my knowledge cut-off in 2021, while others might not have been out at that time, but were considered upcoming releases or were highly anticipated.

  1. "Blue Ocean Strategy: How to Create Uncontested Market Space and Make the Competition Irrelevant" by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne

  2. "The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses" by Eric Ries

  3. "The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail" by Clayton M. Christensen

  4. "Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...And Others Don't" by Jim Collins

  5. "Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future" by Peter Thiel

  6. "Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works" by A.G. Lafley and Roger L. Martin

  7. "Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers" by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur

  8. "The Art of Innovation: Lessons in Creativity from IDEO, America's Leading Design Firm" by Tom Kelley and Jonathan Littman

  9. "Crossing the Chasm: Marketing and Selling High-Tech Products to Mainstream Customers" by Geoffrey A. Moore

  10. "Exponential Organizations: Why new organizations are ten times better, faster, and cheaper than yours (and what to do about it)" by Salim Ismail

  11. "The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth" by Clayton M. Christensen and Michael E. Raynor

  12. "The Four Steps to the Epiphany: Successful Strategies for Startups That Win" by Steve Blank

  13. "Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World" by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler

  14. "Competing Against Luck: The Story of Innovation and Customer Choice" by Clayton M. Christensen

  15. "The Future Is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives" by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler

Please note that it's always a good idea to check the most recent book reviews and synopses to make sure that these books align with your needs and interests.

Here is the second prompt:

"Can you take only that list of books (do not mention additional ones) and only give me results of the books that deal with mid to large size companies, which also might discuss developing an innovation lab?"

Here's what ChatGPT had to say:

From the original list you asked me to focus on, here are the books that deal with innovation in mid to large-sized companies, and may contain relevant insights into developing an innovation lab:

  1. "The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses" by Eric Ries - Although the title suggests this is only relevant for startups, the book also offers principles that can be used in large organizations seeking to build a culture of innovation, potentially through structures like innovation labs.

  2. "The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail" by Clayton M. Christensen - This book talks about how successful, well-managed companies can lose their market leadership when faced with disruptive technologies. It underscores the importance of fostering a culture of innovation in large organizations.

  3. "The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth" by Clayton M. Christensen and Michael E. Raynor - Serving as a sequel to "The Innovator's Dilemma", this book provides strategies that companies can use to drive growth and innovation, possibly via structures like innovation labs.

  4. "The Art of Innovation: Lessons in Creativity from IDEO, America's Leading Design Firm" by Tom Kelley and Jonathan Littman - This book offers insight into the internal innovation processes of IDEO, one of the world's leading design firms, and is applicable to companies of various sizes including mid to large-sized organizations.

  5. "Exponential Organizations: Why new organizations are ten times better, faster, and cheaper than yours (and what to do about it)" by Salim Ismail - This book discusses the need for larger businesses to become more agile and introduces new organizational structures optimized for innovation. These insights could be useful in developing an innovation lab.

While these books may not specifically focus on creating an "innovation lab," they offer valuable insights on how to foster innovation within mid to large-sized companies.

Finished:

As you can see, one of the most useful aspects of searching with ChatGPT is it's ability to remember information in the conversation and iterate on it. We do need to take into consideration that unless we use a plugin, it's database only includes information prior to 2021, however if you aren't expecting up to date info, this shouldnt be a problem.
