The Other Side of Innovation - signed

£12.50

Product description

Companies can't survive without innovating. But most put far more emphasis on generating Big Ideas than on executing them, turning ideas into actual breakthrough products, services, and process improvements.That's because ideating is energizing and glamorous. By contrast, execution seems like humdrum, behind-the-scenes dirty work. But without execution, Big Ideas go nowhere .In The Other Side of Innovation, Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble reveal how to execute an innovation initiative?whether a simple project or a grand, gutsy gamble. Drawing on examples from innovators as diverse as Allstate, BMW, Timberland, and Nucor, the authors explain how to: Build the Right Team: Determine who'll be on the team, where they'll come from, how they'll be organized, how much time they'll devote to the project, and how they'll navigate the delicate and conflict-rich partnership between innovation and ongoing operations, Manage a Disciplined Experiment: Decide how team members can quickly test their assumption , translate results into new knowledge, and measure progress. Give innovation leaders a tough but fair performance evaluation. Practical and provocative, this new book takes you step-by-step through the innovation execution process so your Big Ideas deliver their full promise.
This copy is in very good condition. The unclipped dustjacket has only light shelfwear. The hardback cover is in good condition apart from a little bumping at the ends of the spine. The binding is sound and the pages unmarked.
Signed on the pre-title page by Govindarajan.
