About the Authors
  • There is now widespread agreement that innovation holds the key to future economic and social prosperity in developed countries. But what kind of innovation is required and what is the best way to manage, steer and organize it? Grounded in the experiences of innovative firms and based on the most recent design theories, this book argues that instead of relying on traditional R&D and project management techniques, the strategic management of innovation must be based on innovative design activities. The authors analyse and explain a range of new management principles and techniques that firms can use to ensure continuous innovation. This book targets advanced courses in innovation management in industrial design schools, business schools, engineering schools, as well as managers looking to improve their practice.

    • Establishes new framework for continuous innovation in the firm
    • Original and extended case studies, closely linked to the development of theory
    • Comprehensive literature review, highlighting contributions and limitations of past approaches

    "This timely study proposes an important new perspective on strategic management grounded in both empirical work and in the theory of design. It integrates research on knowledge and creative thinking to develop a radically different approach to the current challenges facing both managers and management researchers." - Ken Starkey, Professor of Management and Organisational Learning, Nottingham University Business School
