Corporations must be able to adapt and evolve, if they wish to survive. The ability to innovate is a source of sustainable competitive advantage. However, how is it possible for a company to breed innovation into the very bones of an organization, so that it becomes an ongoing, managed phenomenon? Is innovative thinking independent of external circumstances? Or, is there any method to its creativity?


Cases and the challenge of teaching innovation management

How can you judge whether your department or company is as innovative as it could be? Innovation Management begins by separating innovation into five interlocking topics: The Innovation Pentathlon. Using this framework, the authors present the best insights from theory and practice for each topic, together with a variety of tools that can be used to boost performance.
