Evolution of Innovation Management

Een nieuw boek: “Evolution of Innovation management” wordt op 15 februari 2013 uitgegeven. Alexander Brem and Eric Viardot zijn de editors. Het boek gaat over het feit dat Innovatie wordt gezien als de key driver voor performance en groei in de business. Innovatie zorgt voor een sterk concurrentie voordeel en sterk onderscheidend vermogen. Het is de manier om veranderingen versnelt door te kunnen voeren en het aanpassingsvermogen te versterken in de global environment.

De uitgever geeft het volgende aan:

Concurrently, the topic of innovation is also gaining increased visibility and interest among academic communities worldwide. However, some of the challenges of innovating are remarkably consistent and recent times have shown the emergence of new ways for stimulating and managing the innovation process, especially from an international perspective. Even if these processes are taking place in very different industries, there are many parallels in successfully managing them.

The new book explores these new routes and assesses their value both for markets and companies. More specifically, the book is organized around three themes:
• Innovation Strategies
• Innovation Management Tools
• International Perspectives

Samen met Robin Chu (team member in mijn Business Innovation team en een van onze top strategic analyst) heb ik hoofdstuk 15 mogen schrijven: “Creating an Environment for Successful Innovation - A Management Consultant's Perspective”.
