About this product
- DescriptionAll the talk about open invation and externally-focused invation assumes that one size fits all in terms of what network-centric invation is and how companies should harness external creativity. But the reality is that there is one right way to master this tool. For instance, loosely governed community-based invation projects are a very different animal from tightly-orchestrated development projects driven by a large firm. As the landscape of network-centric invation becomes more diverse and more confusing, there is a desperate need to structure the landscape to better understand different models for network-centric invation. This book brings clarity to the confusion. Further, it argues that managers cant rely on anecdotal success stories they read about in the press to implement a network-centric invation strategy. They need rigorous and analytical advice on what role their company should play in an invation network, what capabilities they need to create, and how they need to prepare their organization for this significant shift in the invation approach. This book offers a practical and detailed roadmap for planning and implementing an externally-focused invation strategy.
