Описание: “Everybody loves an innovation, an idea that sells.“ But how do we arrive at such ideas that sell? And is it possible to learn how to become an innovator? Over the years Design Thinking – a program originally developed in the engineering department of Stanford University and offered by the two D-schools at the Hasso Plattner Institutes in Stanford and in Potsdam – has proved to be really successful in educating innovators. It blends an end-user focus with multidisciplinary collaboration and iterative improvement to produce innovative products, systems, and services. Design Thinking creates a vibrant interactive environment that promotes learning through rapid conceptual prototyping. In 2008, the HPI-Stanford Design Thinking Research Program was initiated, a venture that encourages multidisciplinary teams to investigate various phenomena of innovation in its technical, business, and human aspects. The researchers are guided by two general questions: 1. What are people really thinking and doing when they are engaged in creative design innovation? How can new frameworks, tools, systems, and methods augment, capture, and reuse successful practices? 2. What is the impact on technology, business, and human performance when design thinking is practiced? How do the tools, systems, and methods really work to get the innovation you want when you want it? How do they fail? In this book, the researchers take a system’s view that begins with a demand for deep, evidence-based understanding of design thinking phenomena. They continue with an exploration of tools which can help improve the adaptive expertise needed for design thinking. The final part of the book concerns design thinking in information technology and its relevance for business process modeling and agile software development, i.e. real world creation and deployment of products, services, and enterprise systems.
Описание: William Duggan`s "Strategic Intuition" explained how innovation really happens in business and other fields and how that matches what modern neuroscience tells us about how creative ideas form in the human mind. In his new book, "Creative Strategy," Duggan offers a step-by-step guide to help individuals and organizations put that same strategy? to work for their own innovations. Duggan shows how creative strategy follows the natural three-step method of the human brain: breaking down a problem into parts, searching for past examples, and creating a new combination to solve the problem. He then explains how to follow these steps to innovate in business and any other field as an individual, a team, or a whole company. The crucial middle step--the search for past examples--takes readers beyond their own brain to a "what-works scan" of what others have done within and outside of the company, industry, and country. Duggan also illustrates creative strategy through real-world cases of innovation that use the same method, from Netflix to Thomas Edison, from Google to Henry Ford. He further demonstrates how to integrate creative strategy into other methods you might currently use, such as Porter`s Five Forces or Design Thinking.

Описание: This is an exciting new edition of a core textbook that explores innovation management from a global perspective. Innovation management is increasingly significant, both as an academic discipline and as an integral part of the way businesses seek to change and grow. However the key factors behind successful innovation and the process by which innovation is turned into profit in the global arena remain largely undefined. The new edition provides a unique answer to these questions and offers a step-by-step guide to innovation strategy development, taking into account the global context in which businesses today operate. Written by a highly experienced instructor, this is an ideal companion for undergraduate students of innovation as well as postgraduate and MBA students taking modules with an innovation component.
Описание: This is the only book on innovation written exclusively for frontline employees; all the other books on innovation explain organization-wide strategies--which can only be implemented by management.

No organizational initiative, R Unleash the "the mindset, skill-set and toolset of the innovator" that enable you to anticipate and rise to the challenges your organization faces in a hypercompetitive era; Build tools for work-life balance and creating your own job satisfaction. Innovation is Everyone's Business is a self-help book, a motivational book, a leadership book, a creativity book, and a team-building book all in one. It is among the first of a new sub-genre of titles on coping with a changing workplace.
Описание: Why does real innovation elude so many companies, including the biggest corporations with the best technical processes, the cheapest resources, and a Chief Innovation Officer in place to implement corporate-wide innovation strategies? The problem, in all these cases, is that they are lacking inspiration. Not to be confused with the burst of energy that sometimes occurs after reports of amplified quarterly earnings or the arrival of a charismatic new leader (both of those are real but tend to be short term), inspiration -- as defined and outlined in this book is a discipline. It is a systematic approach that, when applied consistently, brings long-term, sustainable results. So how do we inspire people? Well, its all about learning to think differently and encouraging others to do the same. Unfortunately, for most of us, thats not something that happens all by itself. It is, however, a rigorous discipline that can be developed and sharpened with practice. Its also an approach. At Play, we call that process LAMSTAIH, which stands for Look At More Stuff; Think About It Harder. LAMSTAIH (pronounced lambs tie), written in five-foot-high letters in Play's office, has also become part of the daily vocabulary of some of the largest corporations in the world, who hire Play to help them acquire the practical skills, leadership behavior, and cultural mindset to create ideas and drive innovation. Look at More Stuff teaches you how to harness inspiration in order to achieve successful innovation. By focusing on the front end of the InspirationCreativityInnovation continuum, this book brings a fresh perspective to a popular conversation that is experiencing fatigue. While other books on innovation focus on the output and organizational mechanics of Innovation, this book explores the often overlooked, and arguably, the most important, front-end of the continuum people. Look at More Stuff is designed to be an individual and organizational guide for harnessing Inspiration. It is filled with strategies, tactics, insights, and cases that show how you can instill inspiration at an individual, team, and organizational level. CEOs, managers and entrepreneurs alike will find this book an invaluable tool for navigating the ever-hungry innovation mandate and turning inspiration into a strategic competitive advantage. Readers will find road-tested recommendations that have been successfully implemented in leading organizations, digestible how-tos and colorful anecdotes told in Stefanovichs inimitable storytelling style.

Описание: This book summarizes the results of the second year in the Design Thinking Research Program, a joint venture of Stanford University in Palo Alto and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. The authors have taken a closer look at the issue of co-creation from different points-of-view. The concept of co-creation can also be applied to the phase in which new ideas and related thought start to influence companies, the economy, our culture, and society. The perpetual pursuit for inventions, new creations and innovations is inherent in human nature. The concept behind co-creation may sound simple, however, it is both an essential element of Design Thinking and highly complex. It is about creating positive synergies for all parties involved.
How organizations can use practices developed by expert designers to solve today's open, complex, dynamic, and networked problems.
When organizations apply old methods of problem-solving to new kinds of problems, they may accomplish only temporary fixes or some ineffectual tinkering around the edges. Today's problems are a new breed -- open, complex, dynamic, and networked -- and require a radically different response. In this book, Kees Dorst describes a new, innovation-centered approach to problem-solving in organizations: frame creation. It applies "design thinking," but it goes beyond the borrowed tricks and techniques that usually characterize that term. Frame creation focuses not on the generation of solutions but on the ability to create new approaches to the problem situation itself.
The strategies Dorst presents are drawn from the unique, sophisticated, multilayered practices of top designers, and from insights that have emerged from fifty years of design research. Dorst describes the nine steps of the frame creation process and illustrates their application to real-world problems with a series of varied case studies. He maps innovative solutions that include rethinking a store layout so retail spaces encourage purchasing rather than stealing, applying the frame of a music festival to understand late-night problems of crime and congestion in a club district, and creative ways to attract young employees to a temporary staffing agency. Dorst provides tools and methods for implementing frame creation, offering not so much a how-to manual as a do-it-yourself handbook -- a guide that will help practitioners develop their own approaches to problem-solving and creating innovation.
Описание: William J Abernathy, a professor at the Harvard Business School when he died in 1984, was a pioneering figure in the study of how the innovation process unfolds. This book presents some of his early papers representing breakthroughs in thinking about innovation that spurred many of the ideas central to the study of the topic today.
