A comprehensive collection of research illustrating advances in innovation over the past century, this unique anthology equips its readers with the knowledge and tools to construct a model of innovation and effectively implement it in both business and non-business settings.

 

The world continues to change at an accelerating pace. The concepts developed in this vast collection of research represent a large part of the study of innovation and technological progress for the past century. An excellent resource for students and practitioners, it offers readers in-depth insight into many of the areas that influence and are influenced by the innovation process - giving them an excellent perspective for conceptualizing the innovation process. 

 

 

How do you ensure your students have a thorough understanding of innovation and the innovation process?

 

Broad Scope: While it's difficult for students to imagine a world different from that in which we live at the moment, things continue to change - and at an accelerating pace.  With this situation in mind, Classics in Innovation Management has evolved. Offering a lively presentation, the book thoroughly illustrates the processes of innovation and change, the elements related to change, and the interrelationships among many of the factors associated with innovation - including technological, social, cultural, and political environments. Presenting innovation through a wide-angle lens and from many different perspectives, the research brought together here illuminates the concepts necessary to model the innovative process. It also sheds light on a path that helps readers understand how to use such a model to implement innovation into their particular situations.

 

 

How do you use past advancements to inspire your students to help develop and implement future innovations?

 

Thorough Research: Classics in Innovation Managementoffers a comprehensive body of research that describes the path and progress of innovative thought over the past century. It provides both the stimulus and grounding for introductory forays into the realm of innovation, in-depth study into various specialized areas of innovation research, and well-rounded coverage of current innovation theory and practice. 

 

Solid Structure: This intriguing research anthology gives readers unparalleled insight into the progress of innovation over the past century. It assembles a variety of innovation works dating back to 1929, building a solid foundation based on the development of tangible products before progressing to investigative efforts that cover the past century. It concludes with insight into the future of innovation and innovation research, including the authors' own thoughts via their construction of a new paradigm of new product development in which many of the constructs developed during the past century are combined into a picture that can offer future developers and innovators potential paths to take for further research and product development and innovation. 

 

Food for Thought: In addition, the book looks back at past research and progress in the innovation discipline and asks, “What have we learned about managing both invention and innovation,” in an attempt to summarize our current state of beliefs, knowledge, and activity. It concludes with a glimpse at the frontier of the study of innovation with a depiction of “open innovation” and the management of intellectual property.

 

 

How do you approach the main topics in your course? Historically? Product driven? Process driven? Etc?

 

Comprehensive Coverage: The book is divided into ten sections covering reasons for innovation; the progression of innovation over time; an historical perspective of invention, innovation, and product technology; product innovation; process innovation; developing and managing service innovation; organizational innovation; managerial practices and innovation strategy; accelerating the innovation process; and the future of innovation. In addition to insightful commentary, each section offers a combination of at least four articles and/or book chapters that relate to a particular thesis. 

 

Flexible Format: All ten sections may be used together as a view of the history and progress of innovation throughout the twentieth century, as well as individually or in groups to focus on particular innovation topics.

 

 

How do you teach students to transform theory and concepts into practical application?

 

Real-World Focus: As the authors developed the text, two of their major purposes were providing readers with the concepts needed to construct a model of innovation appropriate for various practical business and non-business settings, as well as a solid sense of how to implement such a model.

 

Services Emphasis: The book also devotes an entire section to the issues unique to service businesses and innovations - which sets this compilation of research apart from the rest of the market.

  • Section one focuses on why innovation is important to all businesses and organizations. It helps readers recognize that first and foremost innovation has a primary influence on our economy, our society, and the lives of many-if not all-inhabitants of the world.
  • Section two illustrates how innovation and specific innovations and firms progress over time.
  • Section three presents some of the more historical, classical works in the innovation and invention literature captured here, equipping readers with an historical perspective of innovative thought from the early twentieth century.
  • Section four offers readers thorough coverage of new product development processes and models, highlighting many lessons learned from the experience of real companies.
  • Section five explores the relationship between product innovation and process innovation. Covering both process and non-process industries, it provides readers with a solid understanding of the requirements of process innovation.
  • Section six gives readers thorough insight into developing and managing service innovation, offering specific examples from retail and banking.
  • Section seven focuses on organizational innovation and the changes in thinking over the years.
  • Section eight covers accelerating innovation, including pros and cons to techniques for hastening the development of new products.
  • Section nine's series of articles offer insight into managerial practices and innovation strategies. Bringing many practical aspects of innovation into focus, this section integrates product, process, and organizational innovation in a way that equips readers with the tools to create innovation strategies in organizations, as well as the means to scan their environment to ascertain future organizational viability. Articles emphasize the necessary integration within organizations to achieve integrated organizational innovation strategies, the power and opportunities associated with disruptive technologies, the identification and nurturing of champions of innovation, and a process for forecasting innovation profitability.
  • Section ten offers a sweeping overview of the future of innovation, including the authors' insight into a new model of new product development, which attempts to solve many of the problems associated with the traditional NPD model such as its linearity and its lack of consideration of continuous innovation. The chapter also explores reinventing firms through reengineering, an integrative model of new product development, market research, technology management, innovation through organizational networking, open innovation and the management of intellectual property, and the relationship between organizational dominance and innovativeness.
