Innovation is increasingly identified as the critical factor in ensuring economic competitiveness. Departments of state and quasi-governmental organizations in many countries including, Austria, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and the UK, have issued reports and calls to action; but implementation will continue to be problematic unless the points made in this book are taken into account. Drawing on 350 in-depth interviews with senior managers, this book presents an original theory about the characteristics of managers in “good innovative organizations” and “poor innovative organizations”. It pays close attention to the attitudes, understandings, assumptions and interpretations of managers, who are often the ultimate decision-makers when it comes to innovation. The text is supported by real-life, internationally-known cases such as Hewlett-Packard, Zeneca and the BBC, as well as voluntary sector cases such as Oxfam. It is also enriched by substantial and highly revealing quotations from senior managers themselves.

There is now widespread agreement that innovation holds the key to future economic and social prosperity in developed countries. Experts studying contemporary capitalism also agree that the battle against unemployment and relocations can only be won through innovation. But what kind of innovation is required and what is the best way to manage, steer and organize it? Grounded on experiences of innovative firms and based on recent design theories, this book argues that instead of relying on traditional R&D and project management techniques, the strategic management of innovation must be based on innovative design activities. It analyses and explains new management principles and techniques that deal with these activities, including innovation fields, lineages, C-K (Concept-Knowledge) diagrams and design spaces. The book is ideal for advanced courses in innovation management in industrial design schools, business schools, engineering schools, as well as managers looking to improve their practice.

Actionable tools, processes and metrics for successfully managing innovation projects Conventional project management methods are oftentimes insufficient for managing innovation projects. Innovation is lost under the pre-determined scope and forecasted environments of traditional project management. There is tremendous pressure on organizations to innovate, and the project managers responsible for managing these innovation projects do not have the training or tools to do their jobs effectively. Innovation Project Management provides the tools, insights, and metrics needed to successfully manage innovation projects—helping readers identify problems in their organization, conceive elegant solutions, and, when necessary, promote changes to their organizational culture. There are several kinds of innovation—ranging from incremental changes to existing products to wholly original processes that emerge from market-disrupting new technology—that possess different characteristics and often require different tools. Best-selling author and project management expert Harold Kerzner integrates innovation, project management, and strategic planning to offer students and practicing professionals the essential tools and processes to analyze innovation from all sides. Innovation Project Management deconstructs traditional project management methods and explains why and how innovation projects should be managed differently. This invaluable resource: Provides practical advice and actionable tools for effectively managing innovation projects Offers value-based project management metrics and guidance on how to establish a metrics management program Shares exclusive insights from project managers at world-class organizations such as Airbus, Boeing, Hitachi, IBM, and Siemens on how they manage innovation projects Explores a variety of types of innovation including co-creation, value-driven, agile, open versus closed, and more Instructors have access to PowerPoint lecture slides by chapter through the book’s companion website Innovation Project Management: Methods, Case Studies, and Tools for Managing Innovation Projects is an essential text for professional project managers, corporate managers, innovation team members, as well as students in project management, innovation and entrepreneurship programs.

First published in 1961, The Management of Innovation is a business classic: one of the most influential books about business organizations ever published. Challenging the received wisdom that there is "one best way" to manage, it sounded the death knell of classical management theory andprovided something lasting in its place: a way of looking at organizations that allowed for different contexts, different markets, and different rates of technological change. The book's famous typology of organizations as mechanistic vs. organic has proved timeless, as relevant today as more thanthirty years ago. This edition includes a new preface by Tom Burns that situates the work in its historical and current contexts and offers his reflections, years later, on the ideas that changed the way people thought about organizations.

Implementing an Agile Innovation Management System

Due to the exponential pace of technological and societal change and the need for organizations to stay ahead of that change (to thrive) or to stay in step with that change (just to survive), it is crucial that they innovate, and thus that the methodology used to manage the organization's innovation efforts and investments be rigorously structured to support those efforts. Even better would be an approach that assists in shaping the pace of change to your organization's advantage.The Agile Innovation Master Plan (how to align innovation with strategy - the CEO's guide) by Langdon Morris provides such a framework, offering organizations a comprehensive approach to agile innovation management. I am dedicating this effort to further the advancement of that book, which I consider to be Langdon's seminal work on managing innovation. If you have not yet read The Agile Innovation Master Plan, I strongly urge you to put this book down and come back after you have done so; this book is part instructional and part lessons-learned, and some of the terminology and passages will refer back to it for context.But why the need for this book?Having successfully implemented The Agile Innovation Master Plan in our company, I realized that I could help organizations accelerate implementation of this most-important framework by providing an operational overview of that experience. My hope is that by reading this book you will be able to contextualize what I learned during our implementation of the "five key tracks of an effective agile innovation management system," apply it to your specific situation and be able to hit the ground running in an efficient manner. As in all things related to innovation, it was a learning experience, but if I can help you skip the bumps and bruises along the way, I will fulfill a major goal of this book.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of applied sciences, Nürnberg, language: English, abstract: Innovations are not a stroke of luck. Most innovations result from a systematic process. Peter Drucker wrote of innovation management as a learnable, controllable and manageable discipline. This statement can be seen that any company in any country, no matter how large, in what industry, international or local can be innovative if it considers and implements certain rules. Innovation management deals with these aspects. The objective of this work is to work out what structures and processes have to exist within a company in order to become and remain an innovative company. This work is divided into different parts. The first part "Fundamentals of innovation management" introduces the definition of the term innovation and the relationship between ideas and innovations. Furthermore the first part presents briefly the importance of innovation. The second section "Developing an innovation-friendly organization" demonstrates that the innovation activity of the entire company is affected by four individual factors. These four factors the innovation willingness, innovation possibility, innovation capability and the innovation process are closely considered in this part. The last section "Conclusion" will complete and limit the entire work and will give recommendation for further research. For that work no primary data was gathered, the entire work is based on secondary data as the scope of this assignment does not allow for any explorative approaches, interviews or surveys. The necessary information for the work that were previously scattered published or accessible will be arranged, analyzed and interpreted. The sources of secondary data are gathered form books, magazines and sources in the worldwide-web
