Create Competitive Advantage with Innovation (Collection)

Book Description

Four books bring together breakthrough insights and strategies for maximizing the business value of innovation – now, and for years to come

Four remarkable books help executive decision-makers and strategists overcome the stubborn obstacles to business innovation, and implement innovation strategies that really work. In Innovation that Fits: Moving Beyond the Fads to Choose the RIGHT Innovation Strategy for Your Business, three leading experts on commercializing innovation systematically teach the lessons of 250+ corporate innovation programs, defining a focused, integrated model for innovation that’s more well-grounded, more durable, and far more effective. Drawing on the failures of many innovation initiatives, they reveal the right time to use each approach, how to account for contingencies and risks, and how to focus on the core innovation challenges that matter most. In Doing Both: Capturing Today's Profit and Driving Tomorrow's Growth, Cisco Senior VP Inder Sidhu presents the “doing both” strategy that has helped Cisco double revenue, triple profits, and quadruple EPS through the most unstable global business environment in generations. Sidhu shows how to focus on innovation and core businesses; discipline and flexibility; customers and partners. You’ll learn how to avoid false choices, reduced expectations, and weak compromises—and find ways to make each option mutually reinforce the other. In The Open Innovation Marketplace, Alpheus Bingham and Dwayne Spradlin introduce groundbreaking strategies for leveraging a world of innovators to develop breakthrough products faster, with lower cost and risk. Drawing on their experience pioneering the InnoCentive open innovation platform, they show how to dramatically increase the flow of high-value innovations you can discover—and deliver. Disrupt introduces a complete five-step program for identifying disruptive business opportunities—and successfully executing on them! frog design’s Luke Williams combines the design industry’s most powerful creativity techniques with true business implementation discipline. Using case studies, you’ll walk through defining and brainstorming ideas, crafting coherent solutions, getting buy-in, and more.

From world-renowned leaders in business-focused innovation, includingMichael Lord, Donald deBethizy, Jeffrey Wager, Inder Sidhu, Alpheus Bingham, Dwayne Spradlin, and Luke Williams
