From the Back Cover:

"Innovation Engine will help you build a climate and culture of innovation. A must-read for every serious executive desiring innovation as a daily habit in his or her organization and to drive innovation execution."
—Vijay Govindarajan, coauthor of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Reverse Innovation

Discover how to become a world-class innovator with the guidelines, tools, and techniques found in Innovation Engine

In today's dynamic business environment, your business strategies are constantly adapting and evolving. For innovation to be successful, it must be linked to your current strategic intent, a unique direction for the company that will generate specific short-term and long-term value targets. Innovation Engine demonstrates how to implement a scorecard methodology around innovation in your organization to maximize your execution capability.

Emerging out of conversations with executives who have shared their innovation experiences and knowledge—from companies including Microsoft, Yahoo!, Bristol-Myers Squibb, The Hartford, Prudential, Merck, Macy's, AT&T, and Google—author Jatin Desai draws on his thirty years of experience to provide you with the strategies, processes, tools, and behaviors to transform your company into an innovative enterprise.

Innovation Engine helps leaders and managers:

  • Create a business case for innovation and supporting innovation strategy linked to business vision and goals
  • Accelerate innovation outcomes by reducing time-to-market
  • Expand the idea landscape with solid insights about the future
  • Build a pipeline of corporate innovators—the key talent for future growth
  • Balance profit, performance, and market differentiation
  • Help create a world-class, engaged workforce

Learn how to complement your organization's operational performance mindset with the innovation execution mindset, through the guidelines found in Jatin Desai's Innovation Engine.

From the Inside Flap:

Innovation is in high demand today. At the same time, it is often both misunderstood and lacking in committed sponsorship. While methodologies like the balanced scorecard are applied with great success to monitor and manage the key performance drivers in organizations, today's teams need an innovation scorecard that effectively works in tandem with their performance/operations management. Balancing theory and practice with real-life case studies, Innovation Engine explores the process of innovation execution for organizations of any type and any shape.

Derived largely from author Jatin Desai's global experience using and teaching the DeSai body of knowledge over the past twenty-five years, Innovation Engine shows you how to prepare and grow your organization in a hyperdynamic and globally connected environment, through foresight and strategic innovation. Designed for C-suite executives interested in building a climate and culture of innovation, management, and corporate innovators/intrapreneurs, Innovation Engine demonstrates how to build a business case for innovation; create a clear innovation strategy designed to support the business strategy; and build your own playbook for innovation.

Packed with actionable ideas, references, and resources in each chapter so you can easily explore the concepts and ideas immediately, Innovation Engine shows you how to:

  • Link innovation to business strategy
  • Develop clear innovation intent
  • Assess organizational readiness for innovation
  • Create a short-term and long-term road map
  • Build momentum
  • Implement and execute
  • Structure for innovation
  • Implement a formal management process
  • Develop high-performing innovators
  • Source radical ideas
  • Innovate year after year

Innovation Engine can help rewire your organization's DNA to include innovation as a distinct core competence.
