Product description


Focusing on the future challenges companies face in being continously innovative, this book is based on a combination of world class talks given at the Innovation Exchange (IE) conference in November 2001. Through interviews with various companies, the book identifies the best and worst practices in innovation strategy. Three main topics are discussed in detail: trends, challenges, and paradoxes. Utilizing practical and academic knowledge, with a strong reliance on real-world applicability, the book will help readers build innovation performance into their companies.

From the Inside Flap

What is the Innovation Exchange?

The Innovation Exchange (IE) is a network of leading companies dedicated to exploring, understanding and promoting innovation to improve performance, based at London Business School (LBS).

The initiative was set up in response to managers′ desire to exchange experience and discuss challenges in a non–competitive environment. Its official launch at LBS took place on 19th January 1999, supported by key figures from industry and government. Members of the IE champion the principles of innovation both within their own companies and throughout the global business community. The Exchange provides access to:
∗ Specialist and practical knowledge

∗ Access to privileged sources of information

∗ A forum to network with like–minded organisations

∗ Events including workshops, masterclasses, company visits, and an annual conference
The IE web site can be found at iexchange@london.edu. Membership information is also available on +44(0)20 7262 5050 x3396.
