Innovations can be a powerful creator of value, yet many companies continue to limit their innovation to just a few links of the value-chain, and thusly they only get limited results. A couple of innovations, albeit successful ones, cannot afford a sustainable competitive advantage. What companies need is to lead with their innovation-capabilities, which will continue to generate successful innovations. To that effect, this book shows how to develop the innovation-capabilities through the successive levels of proficiency in the management of innovations, i.e. from the innovation of a few products or processes to the management of a portfolio of innovation-projects, which optimizes the balance of risks-rewards-timing. The efficient management of innovations should lead to an effective innovation of the management- and the innovation of the management will lead to better management of innovation. The proficiency in the combination of both will separate the best from the rest. Organizations that cling to traditional forms of management are seldom efficient in the management of innovations, and they may really need to innovate their management so as to be able to achieve a quantum leap in their performances. Transforming a traditional organization into an innovative networking enterprise requires the will and the way. This book shows the way so as to raise the business-leaders resolve to innovate their management. To that effect, its presents the principles and the practices of the Open Management Platform, a systemic, stimulating, and systematic operating-system that integrates the usual management methods. Then, this book outlines the 5 steps of the advocated participative program of management innovation. You can follow the work of Dr. Sussland on willysussland.com
