    The Innovator's Method: Bringing the Lean Start-up Into Your Organization

    By Nathan R. Furr and Jeffrey H. Dyer, Harvard Business Review Press, Available: September. Adapt a start-up mindset—regardless of your organization's size—to quickly and effectively create, refine and execute ideas.

Have you ever considered whether it's more important to be smart or resourceful? Do you wonder why some people--and teams--constantly make the same mistakes? Are you challenged daily to deal with endless project demands that always seem to require "a brand new blueprint" to make them work? If so, then the following fall business books promise to help you sort through these and other relevant challenges. The authors represent highly respected academic institutions, including Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), as well as a long line of well-regarded business and technology leaders. One book conveys the urgency for businesses—even large enterprises—to recreate themselves with the best practices of start-ups. Another provides a more reflective perspective on the profound impact the Internet has had over the last two decades. So pick a title or two (or more) from this list and enjoy a good read that will help you become a more informed, well-rounded professional. These books are also likely to enhance your career prospects. (Release dates are subject to change, so check the listed books' Websites for updates.)
