Innovation Explosion speaks directly to managers, entrepreneurs, government policymakers, and academics. The authors introduce and develop truly novel concepts that go well beyond earlier books on how to manage innovation. Its most notable concepts include: the "software paradigm" for shortening innovation cycles, improving payoffs, leveraging resources, and decreasing risks well beyond any other approach available at this time; dynamic innovation organizations that move beyond teams toward independent collaborations of much greater power; uniquely structured knowledge systems able to create "autocatalytic" or "negative entropy" effects, yielding massive "technological multiplier" benefits for corporations and economies; "core-competency-with-strategic-outsourcing" strategies that allow greater concentration, leveraging, and flexibility than any other strategies presented to date; critical methodologies for executives to use in measuring intellectual assets and innovation, and developing them farther than previously thought possible; practical changes in national policies, which are needed to support private innovation and which, if implemented, will greatly expand marketing growth and national wealth; international implications of the software revolution, now enabling worldwide economic development on a scale never before seen.
Innovation Explosion breaks entirely new ground in both theory and management practice.
