Pressestimmen

"Should you buy a book that will make you uncomfortable?

More questions: Why is it so difficult to ship good ideas out the door? Why do committees show up and wreck the purity of your idea? Why do people avoid doing the hard work of actually bringing their work to the market?

I'll tell you why: Because it's safe. Ideas that never ship are never criticized. Faceless committees accept the blame for tepid products that were probably better off in the warehouse. And managers in search of a place to hide can best hide behind the unshipped product, the unrealized idea and the system gone wrong.

Scott Belsky has your number. He's seen it all before. He knows your excuses, he's seen your shtick and he knows all the ways to avoid doing the work. In this book, Scott's not giving you any place to hide.

There. Do you still want to read his book?

If you care about your art, your job, or your market, you really have no choice. This is strategy and tactics, concepts and how-to, all in one on a topic that's often overlooked."
-Seth Godin, Author, Linchpin

"Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard. This book helps you with the hard part."
-Guy Kawasaki, Co-founder of Alltop and former chief evangelist of Apple

"Making Ideas Happen is timely and vital to a new generation of creative leaders. Ideas are important, but executing on those ideas is the crucial component that so many of us forget about. Great execution is rare, and Belsky lays out practical principles and a clear plan for getting things done. I highly recommend this book!"
-Brad Lomenick, Executive Director, Catalyst

"From his years spent understanding how the most productive entrepreneurs and creative minds operate, Scott Belsky provides a compendium of the knowledge one needs to turn a great idea into something tangible. This is a book about execution, and when it comes to going from idea to a real business, execution is everything."
-JOHN BATELLE, Co-founder of Wired and Boing Boing, founder of Federated Media

"If your creative team or organization struggles to implement their best ideas, or if you find that your own creative projects languish unfinished, you need Making Ideas Happen.
-TERESA AMABILE, Prof. of Business Administration, Dir. of Research, Harvard Business School

"In just one volume, Belsky shows how to execute simply, boldly, powerfully. He reveals the forces and methods that push projects to completion -and how they are accessible to all of us. Practical and perfect ways to implement your ideas with peace of mind."
-LEO BABAUTA, Author of ZenHabits.net and The Power of Less

"I hear people talking all the time about great ideas that never come to life. This book is like a Swiss Army knife for ideas. It offers step-by-step tools to turn ideas into action, and is full of wonderful and enlightening stories of those who have made their ideas happen."
-JI LEE, Creative Director at Google Creative Lab and Founder of the Bubble Project

"Scott Belsky has observed how designers think and has created a way to help them make the complex clear -and the actionable achievable- within the rush of creativity that defines their mind's workspace. His ideas provide an effective way to manage ideation, iteration, and execution."
-RICHARD GREF+, CEO of AIGA

"Belsky's approach has made my life even simpler. Making Ideas Happen demonstrates that ideas of any magnitude are achievable by simply taking one step at a time. Belsky offers an illustrated map to get to the destination of your great ideas."
-SCOTT THOMAS, Design Director, Obama Presidential Campaign

"There are techniques in this book that can turn disorganized creative prima donnas into organized creative prima donnas. It's full of terrific lessons in how to keep great ideas alive."
-CHUCK PORTER, Co-chairman, Crispin Porter + Bogusky

Kurzbeschreibung

Thomas Edison famously said that genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration. Every day new solutions, revolutionary cures, and artistic breakthroughs are conceived and squandered by smart people. Along with the gift of creativity come the obstacles to making ideas happen: lack of organisation, lack of accountability and a lack of community support.



Scott Belsky has interviewsed hundreds of the most productive creative people and teams in the world, revealing one common trait: a carefully trained capacity for executing ideas. Implementing your ideas is a skill that can be taught, and Belshy distills the core principles in this book.



While many of us obsess about discovering great new ideas, Belsky shows why it is better to develop the capacity to make ideas happen - using old-fashioned passion and perspiration. Making Ideas Happen reveals the practical yet counterintuitive techniques of 'serial creatives' - those few who make their visions a reality.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Specifics of Self-Organization for Creatives 13. März 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
Another reviewer ended his critical review with the words "you better buy a normal book on project organization". This reflects an inadequate understanding of this book. Scott Belsky's book is about self-organization for people with ideas, e.g. creatives or entrepreneurs (strongly in that sequence). It is a great read *after* having read other books on project organization, self-organization, community building, and leadership. It cannot (and does not intend) to render those books unnecessary. It creates added value on top of them.

One of the main needs and goals of people with ideas is focus. And the clear focus on the specifics of organization for creatives and other people with ideas is not a weakness, but its greatest strengths. Every person with ideas is her own universe, and has to lead her own struggle to find her optimal solutions. In this struggle, Scott Belsky's book is a great partner.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Von der Vision zur Realität 1. Januar 2011
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Gute Ideen sind keine Mangelware. Oft scheitert es aber an der Umsetzung. Es gibt eine Menge Bücher über Selbstorganisation, nur die konzentrieren sich meistens auf das Tagesgeschäft und die Informationen, die auf einen einströmen. Hier geht es aber darum, eigene Ideen umzusetzen, d.h. aktiv tätig zu werden. Die einfache Antwort: organisiere alles was du beruflich oder privat anpackst als Projekt und brich es runter in Action points, sprich: Maßnahmen. Das Vorgehen dabei wird im Detail erklärt.

Im Weiteren geht es auch darum, Ideen weiter zu entwickeln. Viele glauben, dass Ideen sorgsam gehütet werden müssen, damit sie nicht von anderen geklaut und weiter verwendet werden. Scott Belsky ist dagegen der Meinung, dass Ideen besser werden, wenn sie mit anderen geteilt werden. Das Feedback der Umwelt hilft, gute von schlechten Ideen zu trennen und die guten weiter zu entwickeln und zu verfeinern. Hier kommt wieder der Grundgedanke des Buches zum Vorschein: Es genügt nicht gute Ideen zu haben, die Crux liegt in der Umsetzung.

Das Kapitel über Leadership fand ich nicht so toll, das habe ich woanders schon besser gesehen, aber insgesamt spreche ich eine klare Kaufempfehlung für das Buch aus.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Projektmanagement für Einsteiger 23. Oktober 2011
Von Coffee79
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ich habe mir dieses Buch gekauft, in der Hoffnung ein paar kreative Ideen für die Umsetzung von Ideen zu bekommen - was in diesem Buch beschrieben wird ist jedoch nichts anderes als das ganz normale Vorgehen im Projektmanagement. Im Prinzip wird erläutert dass man auch besonders kreative Leute dazu bringen muss sich Meilensteine zu setzen, Zeitmanagement zu betreiben usw... Als Alternative kann ich nur empfehlen sich ein richtiges Buch über Projektmanagement zu besorgen.

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Surely, as I have thought, so it shall come to pass,
And as I have purposed, so it shall stand:" -- Isaiah 14:24 (NKJV)

Psychologists estimate that the average person has over 10,000 thoughts a day. I believe that because I once met a consultant who would share almost that many thoughts with me every time we met. The only problem was that these weren't very useful thoughts . . . but he sure loved each and every one. I took to peeking around corners so I could avoid his latest informal briefing. That's one kind of problem that people have with their ideas . . . they don't attract any interest.

Mr. Belsky organizes the method of turning ideas into action according this formula:

"(The Idea) + Organization and Execution + Forces of Community + Leadership Capability"

The book digs into this formula by first proposing a way of organizing work on ideas (the Action Method). I found the proposal to be reasonably similar to the way I organize my work so I suggest you take it seriously if you have trouble keeping track of what's going on the moving things forward expeditiously. I agree with the key point that it takes a lot of effort to turn an idea into reality. Most of my books were conceived of in a few seconds or minutes, but the work involved to write and produce one takes months of dedicated, consistent effort. Implementations that build on the books take 100 times more effort.

I also agree with the point about concentrating your efforts. Otherwise you get 1 percent of a lot of things done, which amounts to nothing being accomplished.

I thought that Mr. Belsky also did a good job of pointing out how collaboration helps. Right on!

I personally found the section on leadership capability to be the most practical.
