Innovation Management: Strategies, Concepts and Tools for Growth and Profit is a unique book in the rapidly growing discipline of Innovation Management. It seeks to build on the experience from an earlier discipline—Competitive Strategy. It took more than two decades for practitioners to realize that successful strategy is driven by implementation, not by formulation. Similarly, successful innovation—the key to growth and profit—rests on disciplined management and implementation of the innovation process from start to finish. This book first answers the key questions: Why innovate? How to innovate? Who innovates? It then provides 10 essential and practical tools to help innovators guide their ideas to marketplace success. Following the publication of the successful first edition, and in response to many readers' positive feedback for its case studies, the second edition contains a large number of new mini case studies about innovative start-ups, businesses, and ideas in the period of 2007–12 Innovation Management shows how companies and individuals can transform creative ideas into powerful, sustainable, change-the-world businesses and emphasizes the crucial role of execution in implementing inspiring ideas.

Designed to meet the increasing number of courses in this vitally important area of business, Innovation Management is the first text to provide full course coverage of innovation management as its core theme. Drawing from his professional and academic experience, Allan Afuah shows the relationship between innovation, a management function, and profitability, a financial function. He creates a framework to encompass the basic questions of the who, what, when, and where of innovation, combining the latest theoretical discussions with abundant examples. Because of its integrative presentation, the text takes a unique multi-functional approach, covering the important contributions of economics, organizational theory, marketing, and finance to innovation management. This approach provides the student with a full presentation of appropriate management theory, as well as detailed coverage of practical concerns such as the role of government regulation, choosing a profit site, and the transfer of innovation. The impact of the public and international sectors are highlighted with chapters on globalization, innovation in emerging economies, and the role of government in promoting innovation. In addition to the strong analytical and theoretical foundation, Innovation Management offers many pedagogical examples. Most chapters conclude with short practice cases designed to supplement the numerous examples within each chapter. These cases are then followed by a list of key terms and questions to stimulate discussion. The author also includes an extended case on the Netscape Corporation. Because of the crucial importance of innovation, the key to gaining and maintaining a competitive advantage in the business world, Innovation Management is an ideal text for business school programs and provides guidance for executives and managers looking to understand the value of innovation.

Innovative concepts are like living organisms-they require energy and resources to survive. Innovation can only thrive when it emerges from an organization committed to the growth and sustainability of the enterprise. Instead of thinking of cultivating an innovation in isolation, organizations are more successful when they generate a cluster of innovations, manage them side-by-side, and evaluate how they interact as a portfolio of initiatives. Volume 5, the final volume in this detailed reference series, tackles the changing role of strategy, leadership, transformation, sustainability, and how to manage a balanced portfolio of strategic initiatives. Over the past two decades, Innovation360 founder Magnus Penker has counseled countless enterprises on making innovation profitable, executing digitization and the global implications of new business models. He was recognized as "CEO of the Year" in 2016 for his achievements in Innovation and Growth Strategies. While devoting time to helping others, he successfully launched 10 startups and turned around more than 30 businesses throughout the continent of Europe. Penker and his colleagues bring their collective wisdom and contemporary examples from well-known corporations to this thought-provoking and game-changing approach to innovation. "In our degree programme, we aim to give leaders the tools and know-how to innovate and transform their companies & industries. This book is an excellent resource to understand the external influences and internal abilities to do so." - Melissa Rancourt, Academic Director of Global Executive Master Degree on Strategic Design & Management at Parsons School of Design. "This book discusses the critical role that people and organization have in making innovation happen. The text is nicely organized, and it aligns well the emerging ISO/CD 50501 standard/guidance for innovation management." - John Saiz, Principal Industrial Fellow at the Univ. of Cambridge and former CTO of NASA JSC.
