Book Summary: the Other Side of InnovationeBook - 2014
Companies are struggling to make innovation happen. Some give their workers free time to come up with new ideas (innovation = ideas). Some have detailed processes for closing the loop between ideas and execution (innovation = ideas + processes). Others put the burden of innovation on talented individuals (innovation = ideas + leaders).However, the undeniable fact is that organizations are not designed for innovation. They are optimized for ongoing operations. Innovation must be carried out in partnership with the corporation's performance engine to be useful. The Other Side of Innovation therefore suggests a more accurate formula for innovation: Innovation = Idea + Leader + Team + Plan. Govindarajan and Trimble describe the two areas where most attention should be focused, so that the innovation initiative bears fruit. The Other Side of Innovation is an essential reading for anyone wishing to make his or her company successful.
