Sustained innovation requires a seamless, structured management approach that begins with board and CEO-level issues and connects all the way through technology investment and implementation. Using case studies from large companies, social enterprises, and the government sector, this book shows how enterprises can innovate to survive and even thrive in the knowledge-based global community. It explores knowledge-based, technology-enabled innovation that is driven from the convergence of business and technology. In search of innovation, it takes readers from the doorsteps of American corporate giants to the home of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, from R&D centers in Israel to India's new economy, from the enterprising government of Algeria to the inspiring operations of Grameen in remote villages of Bangladesh. It is a story of global innovation today, but furthermore, it is the story of human potential.
