How to Innovate and Execute Leaders already know that innovation calls for a different set of activities, skills, methods, metrics, mind-sets, and leadership approaches. And it is well understood that creating a new business and optimizing an already existing one are two fundamentally different management challenges. The real problem for leaders is doing both, simultaneously. How do you meet the performance requirements of the existing business—one that is still thriving—while dramatically reinventing it? How do you envision a change in your current business model before a crisis forces you to abandon it? Innovation guru Vijay Govindarajan expands the leader’s innovation tool kit with a simple and proven method for allocating the organization’s energy, time, and resources—in balanced measure—across what he calls “the three boxes”: • Box 1: The present—Manage the core business at peak profitability • Box 2: The past—Abandon ideas, practices, and attitudes that could inhibit innovation • Box 3: The future—Convert breakthrough ideas into new products and businesses The three-box framework makes leading innovation easier because it gives leaders a simple vocabulary and set of tools for managing and measuring these different sets of behaviors and activities across all levels of the organization. Supported with rich company examples—GE, Mahindra & Mahindra, Hasbro, IBM, United Rentals, and Tata Consultancy Services—and testimonies of leaders who have successfully used this framework, this book solves once and for all the practical dilemma of how to align an organization on the critical but competing demands of innovation.

In their first book, Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators, the authors provided a better model for executing disruptive innovation. They laid out a three-part plan for launching high-risk/high-reward innovation efforts: (1) borrow assets from the existing firms, (2) unlearn and unload certain processes and systems that do not serve the new entity, and (3) learn and build all new capabilities and skills. In their study of the Ten Rules in action, Govindarajan and Trimble observed many other kinds of innovation that were less risky but still critical to the company's ongoing success. In case after case, senior executives expected leaders of innovation initiatives to grapple with forces of resistence, namely incentives to keep doing what the company has always done--rather than develop new competence and knowledge. But where to begin? In this book, the authors argue that the most successful everyday innovators break down the process into six manageable steps: 1. Divide the labor 2. Assemble the dedicated team 3. Manage the partnership 4. Formalize the experiment 5. Break down the hypothesis 6. Seek the truth. The Other Side of Innovation codifies this staged approach in a variety of contexts. It delivers a proven step-by-step guide to executing (launching, managing, and measuring) more modest but necessary innovations within large firms without disrupting their bread-and-butter business.

The tale includes an unexpected leadership challenge, an ambitious call to action, a bold idea, countless internal obstacles and conflicts, fears, joys, triumphs, and even a love interest. It's a story that can be enjoyed by anyone. How Stella Saved the Farm delivers eight simple lessons to guide innovation initiatives to success. It prepares business leaders to avoid some of innovation's most toxic myths, teaches how to build the right kind of team, and shows how to learn quickly from experience.

Health-Care Solutions from a Distant Shore Health care in the United States and other nations is on a collision course with patient needs and economic reality. For more than a decade, leading thinkers, including Michael Porter and Clayton Christensen, have argued passionately for value-based health-care reform: replacing delivery based on volume and fee-for-service with competition based on value, as measured by patient outcomes per dollar spent. Though still a pipe dream here in the United States, this kind of value-based competition is already a reality--in India. Facing a giant population of poor, underserved people and a severe shortage of skills and capacity, some resourceful private enterprises have found a way to deliver high-quality health care, at ultra-low prices, to all patients who need it. This book shows how the innovations developed by these Indian exemplars are already being practiced by some far-sighted US providers--reversing the typical flow of innovation in the world. Govindarajan and Ramamurti, experts in the phenomenon of reverse innovation, reveal four pathways being used by health-care organizations in the United States to apply Indian-style principles to attack the exorbitant costs, uneven quality, and incomplete access to health care. With rich stories and detailed accounts of medical professionals who are putting these ideas into practice, this book shows how value-based delivery can be made to work in the United States. This "bottom-up" change doesn't require a grand plan out of Washington, DC, agreement between entrenched political parties, or coordination among all players in the health-care system. It needs entrepreneurs with innovative ideas about delivering value to patients. Reverse innovation has worked in other industries. We need it now in health care.

Innovation transforms companies and markets. It's the key to solving vexing social problems. And it makes or breaks professional careers. But for all the enthusiasm the topic inspires, the practice of innovation - how to do it-has remained stubbornly impenetrable. No longer. In The Little Black Book of Innovation, leading thinker Scott D. Anthony draws from research, Innosight fieldwork with global giants such as Procter & Gamble, and personal experience launching and investing in start-up companies to demystify the discipline of innovation. With wit and remarkable insight born of years of both leading and teaching innovation, Anthony presents a simple definition of the concept, breaks down the essential differences between its various types, and illuminates its vital role in organizational success and personal growth.

"This counterintuitive and powerfully effective approach to creativity demonstrates how every corporation and organization can develop an innovative culture. The traditional attitude toward creativity in the American business world is to 'think outside the box'-- to brainstorm without restraint in hopes of coming up with a breakthrough idea, often in moments of crisis. Sometimes it works, but it's a problem-specific solution that does nothing to engender creative thinking more generally. 'Inside the Box' demonstrates Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT), which systemizes creativity as part of the corporate culture."--Provided by publisher.

The authors of this book explain the differences between managing by the 3-Ps (Proximity, Position, and Persuasion) and the 3-Cs (Clarity, Consistency, and Connectivity). Leaders who employ the 3-Ps manage with a focus on the individual. Leaders who use the 3-Cs, however, manage by weaving personal leadership techniques with a process of managing the business or organization that has proven extremely effective during the decade since it was introduced. It's a way to lead a company or organization that leaves a legacy of sustained growth and success for those who come after the leader to latch onto and continue. The book is written as a business novel. What is learned on the protagonist's journey is expanded upon in a lesson at the conclusion of each chapter. Readers are then invited to assess their own legacy potential by completing a self-assessment. The management process this book contains is now being employed successfully not only by small and medium size businesses, but also by Fortune 500 companies, successful municipalities, and the United States Army.

"Managerial styles are influenced by habit, familiarity, and workplace culture. It's no wonder that well-intentioned professionals doing their best to be good organizational leaders often repeat unhelpful supervisory practices experienced in their early careers, even if they disliked them at the time. In the DUH! Book of Management and Supervision, the author disagrees with many accepted leadership principles (unabashedly referring to them as myths) and makes new and different approaches easier to imagine. Her challenging and controversial concepts illustrated with poignant stories suggest common-sense and immediately applicable alternatives more suitable in today's workplace"--Back cover.

What is Information Governance? Information governance is using the business strategy to apply objectivity, economies, and efficiencies of scale to the processes necessary for the management of information in the achievement of business success. The point of Information or Data Governance is to create TRUSTED data for the business. But how is that actually done? This book is for the individual who is looking for a starting place for establishing a path to better information for their business through a data governance program.

What do I show executives to illustrate the progress of a data governance program? How can trust of business data be quantified? How is the relevance of data to the business determined? What is the appropriate level of management and governance necessary for the data? This book will help you answer these questions and start improving (and measuring the improvement) of data for your business.
