Networks of Innovation by Louis Galambos

Networks of Innovation: Vaccine Development at Merck, Sharp and Dohme, and Mulford, 1895-1995 By Louis Galambos
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6 MB
Overview: Networks of Innovation offers a historical perspective on the manner in which private sector organizations have acquired, sustained, and periodically lost the ability to develop, manufacture, and market new serum antitoxins and vaccines. The primary focus is on the H. K. Mulford Company, on Sharp & Dohme, which acquired Mulford in 1929, and on Merck & Co., Inc., which merged with Sharp & Dohme in 1953. By surveying a century of innovation in biologicals, the authors show how the activities of these three commercial enterprises were related to a series of complex, evolving networks of scientific, governmental, and medical institutions in the United States and abroad.

Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation 3E by Patrick Dawson

Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation 3rd Edition by Patrick Dawson , Costas Andriopoulos
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 7.5 MB
Overview: A fresh approach to managing organizational change by looking at it as complex, dynamic, and messy as opposed to a series of neat, linear stages and processes leading to success.

Key to the approach is the idea that change, creativity and innovation all overlap and interconnect rather than being three separate areas of study and that managing the three together is central to organizations having the competitive edge in developing new technologies and techniques, products and services.

Managing Change, Creativity and Innovation continues to offer practical guidelines as well as a theoretical understanding of change, creativity and innovation. It delivers an equal balance of critical perspectives and sound ideas for organizational change and development and presents the idea that change can be proactive, driven by creativity and innovation.

The Third Edition includes additional change management content including learning, personal change, managing the self, employability, developments in conventional Organizational Development and new emergent forms including appreciative inquiry. Along with a series of rich international case studies, including TNT Australia, Amazon, Leeds Rhinos, Jerusalem Paints, Alpha Pro Pump and KPMG.

It is supported by a range of learning and revision aids including reflective exercises, review and discussion questions and hands-on research tasks. All of which help students to reflect on the material covered and provide a source for more open group discussion and debate.

A companion website accompanies the book, with additional material including PowerPoint slides for lecturers and video links and access to SAGE journal articles for students.
Suitable for upper-level undergraduates and postgraduate students.
Genre: Non-Fiction > General

Democratizing Innovation by Eric von Hippel +

Democratizing Innovation by Eric von Hippel
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.3MB
Overview: Innovation is rapidly becoming democratised. Users, aided by improvements in computer and communications technology, increasingly can develop their own new products and services. These innovating users-both individuals and firms-often freely share their innovations with others, creating user-innovation communities and a rich intellectual commons. In Democratizing Innovation, Eric von Hippel looks closely at this emerging user-centred innovation system. He explains why and when users find it profitable to develop new products and services for themselves, and why it often pays users to reveal their innovations freely for the use of all. The trend toward democratised innovation can be seen in software and information products-most notably in the free and open-source software movement-but also in physical products. Von Hippel’s many examples of user innovation in action range from surgical equipment to surfboards to software security features. He shows that product and service development is concentrated among lead users, who are ahead on marketplace trends and whose innovations are often commercially attractive. processes and systematically seek out innovations developed by users. He points to businesses-the custom semiconductor industry is one example-that have learned to assist user-innovators by providing them with toolkits for developing new products. User innovation has a positive impact on social welfare, and von Hippel proposes that government policies, including R&D subsidies and tax credits, should be realigned to eliminate biases against it. The goal of a democratised user-centred innovation system, says von Hippel, is well worth striving for.
