Open Services Innovation. Competere in Una Nuova Era

Author: Henry Chesbrough Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/06/2011

Il primo libro di Henry Chesbrough, Open Innovation, era riuscito a definire un nuovo paradigma per il management del 21 secolo; con Open Services Innovation, che appare ora tradotto in italiano, l'autore ci spiega come l'Innovazione Aperta, associata a una rivalutazione del ruolo dei servizi, pu portare le imprese a scoprire nuove opportunit in un'economia sempre pi dominata dal terziario. Chesbrough illustra come le aziende in tanti settori diversi possono differenziarsi e innovare passando da una visione basata sul prodotto a un concetto di business orientato al servizio, e da una mentalit d'innovazione chiusa a un approccio aperto a contributi e risorse che arrivano dal mondo esterno. Il libro propone innumerevoli esempi che illustrano teorie e modelli, offrendo una guida molto concreta per l'implementazione di idee e strategie. In questa edizione, ai riferimenti americani sono affiancati tanti casi di imprese italiane con cui il lettore sapr facilmente confrontarsi.

The father of open innovation is back with his most significant book yet. Henry Chesbrough s acclaimed book Open Innovation described a new paradigm for management in the 21st century. Open Services Innovation offers a new approach that demonstrates how open innovation combined with a services approach to business is an effective and powerful way to grow and compete in our increasingly services-driven economy. Chesbrough shows how companies in any industry can make the critical shift from product- to service-centric thinking, from closed to open innovation where co-creating with customers enables sustainable business models that drive continuous value creation for customers. He maps out a strategic approach and proven framework that any individual, business unit, company, or industry can put to work for renewed growth and profits. The book includes guidance and compelling examples for small and large companies, services businesses, and emerging economies, as well as a path forward for the innovation industry.

Open Business Models How To Thrive In The New Innovation Landscape

Open Business Models How To Thrive In The New Innovation Landscape

Author: Henry Chesbrough Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2006

In his landmark book Open Innovation, Henry Chesbrough demonstrated that because useful knowledge is no longer concentrated in a few large organizations, business leaders must adopt a new, open model of innovation. Using this model, companies look outside their boundaries for ideas and intellectual property (IP) they can bring in, as well as license their unutilized home-grown IP to other organizations. In Open Business Models, Chesbrough takes readers to the next step--explaining how to make money in an open innovation landscape. He provides a diagnostic instrument enabling you to assess your company's current business model, and explains how to overcome common barriers to creating a more open model. He also offers compelling examples of companies that have developed such models--including Procter & Gamble, IBM, and Air Products. In addition, Chesbrough introduces a new set of players-- innovation intermediaries --who facilitate companies' access to external technologies. He explores the impact of stronger IP protection on intermediate markets for innovation, and profiles firms (such as Intellectual Ventures and Qualcomm) that center their business model on innovation and IP. This vital resource provides a much-needed road map to connect innovation with IP management, so companies can create and capture value from ideas and technologies--wherever in the world they are found.

Research on Technological Innovation, Management and Policy

Research on Technological Innovation, Management and Policy

Author: Henry Chesbrough Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/06/1997

Volume 6 of Research on Technological Innovation, Management and Policy contains five papers on strategic change in firms and industries. All five discuss aspects of the interrelationships between technology strategy, competitive strategy, and organization and management. The first two address these at a level of the industry; the next two at firm level; in the final chapter, the level of analysis is primarily the technology. These five chapters are illustrative of themes in current research that are shaping the field of strategic management technology and innovation. They build well on earlier work in the field and thereby support its further empirical and theoretical development. They also provide useful insights for practicing managers faced with the challenges of changing technologies and a rapid rate of innovation.
