The readings present key writings by well-known internatonal contributors who collectively present an accessible account of ways to develop and sustain an innovative organization. The book is split into six sections that introduce the reader to the changed business context, new ways of managing people, policies and practices for managing innovation, the role of partnerships and networks, some contrasting ways of reconstructing organizations and the impact of technology.
Managing Innovation and Change illustrates the variety of thinking about innovation in organizations and describes strategies and practical procedures for dealing with innovation and change. It offers a timely overview of the management of innovation in a changing environment.
The book is a reader for the Open University Business School Creativity, Innovation and Change MBA course.
Classical school-literature, but it includes some interesting articles (like Collins and Porras), but mostly it consists of manure.
Of course, I am biased, as I had it while doing my MBA, and time allows some of the articles to grow on you, but it still mostly stinks.
