From the Back Cover:

Executives have reported that innovation is crucial to their competitiveness—but many reported deep concerns about their firms’ ability to innovate effectively. No wonder: profitable innovation doesn’t just “happen.” It must be managed, measured, executed on...and, even after many years struggling to improve, few companies do this well.
