Twenty-first century advances in technology, transportation, and business models have enabled companies of all sizes to enter markets once thought to be the exclusive domain of giant enterprises. In this environment, innovation has emerged as the competitive differentiator that will propel companies to become global leaders. Supplying practical guidance for integrating innovation throughout the organization, Chance or Choice: Unlocking Innovation Success introduces the authors' proprietary ENOVALE methodology. ENOVALE is a blueprint that provides leaders and managers of any organization with a strategic framework to initiate and maintain innovation and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. What makes this book different is that it originates from decades of experience, cutting-edge research, and empirical evidence. The results come from the authors' work on Project Impact, an ongoing multiyear global study to measure attitudes, opinions, and disposition of different cultures towards innovation. Expanding on the current definition of innovation, the book:
Spells out a detailed "how-to" approach for those responsible for innovation leadership
Outlines practical solutions and time-tested strategies
Emphasizes the role of the individual as the ultimate innovator
Presents concepts that are applicable across a range of industries, including the services industry
Rather than relegating innovation to the R&D and engineering functions, the book extends the ENOVALE framework into all functions of your organization. It also details a project strategy useful for any type of innovation to help you lead your teams in leveraging the innovative capabilities valued by your customers and users. Throughout the book, the authors outline the tools and concepts you will need to move your organization from simply surviving to thriving in today's brutally competitive global environment.
You can't ask for more than efficient, effective operations. Or can you?
Given today's business landscape--increasing customer demand, global competition, lower trade barriers--being good isn't enough. This groundbreaking guide provides the knowledge and tools you need to transform your organization from a well-run company to a relentlessly innovative company.
Innovation expert Jeffrey Phillips has helped businesses around the world achieve the dream--the implementation of innovation as a consistent business discipline. In Relentless Innovation, he reveals his secrets for the first time.
Phillips argues that today's typical business models actually impede innovation because they place so much focus on efficiency, cost cutting, and short-term gain. Does this describe your business model? If it does, you need to revisit your approach and redefine your idea of what success actually is. You may find that your "business as usual" processes actively reject innovation efforts.
Relentless Innovation has everything you need to strike the right balance between efficiency and innovation. Striking that balance will help your firm:
Become proactive instead of reactive
Create a more engaged workforce
Establish deeper capabilities to define and achieve strategic goals
Increase revenues and profits while retaining efficient cost management
Sustain market differentiation
Improve your public reputation
Increase your ability to leverage internal knowledge and external partnerships
Offering the broadest view to date of the relationship between innovation and business strategy, Relentless Innovation provides you with the information and tools you need to transform innovation from an infrequent activity to a core capability in your organization.
