Innovation Strategy for the Knowledge Economy: The Ken Awakening
Innovation Strategy for the Knowledge Economy is intended for managers who have practiced the best of quality and re-engineering management techniques and are ready to transform their organizations with the systematic notions of knowledge creation and application. It is for organization leaders who prefer to be inspired with innovation strategy than hit over the head with change management techniques. It does not deal with barriers, hurdles, or conflicts to be resolved; rather, it paints a possible vision of how we can take advantage of our collective learning to move an enterprise forward.
This book provides the reader with a sound, practical framework for instituting innovation strategy beyond the traditional definition of flow of parts or finances. At the core is an understanding of the dual value of knowledge (content) and innovation (process) using 'real-time' learning as the methodology.
Innovation Strategy for the Knowledge Economy introduces new managerial concepts such as:
Value-System versus Value-Chain
Strategic Business Network (SBN) versus Strategic Business Unit (SBU)
Customer Success versus Customer Satisfaction
It is an invaluable resource for both managers and organization leaders.
