Six Games That Drive GrowthUnknown - 2012
"Innovation is essential for businesses to survive in the long run, but there are no one-size-fits-all strategies for innovating successfully. A firm's specific business environment will determine what works and what does not work. Based on a global survey of innovative firms and on 50 in-depth case studies, Innovation Reinvented identifies six patterns or 'games' of innovation, each commanding best-of-class strategies and best practices. Examining recognized innovative companies - from Apple and Intel in the technology area to Proctor & amp; Gamble and Clorox in mature markets - this book dispels the notion of innovation as a 'one-size fits all' or necessarily radical process. As Roger Miller and Marcel Co^teþ demonstrate, the vast majority of innovations result from improvements in product features or business processes. Innovation Reinvented provides a unique framework for entrepreneurs and senior executives to identify the game(s) in which a business is involved, and which approaches are best-suited to win by competing on innovation."--Publisher's website.
