System for Industrial Innovation
The book provides an entire system for managing innovation. Its purpose is threefold: (1) to guide organizations to quickly develop ideas into legitimate, profitable business opportunities; (2) to capture these opportunities in a compelling case for securing the necessary resources; and (3) to plan for the adoption of the innovation and to establish the necessary governance system required to systematically do breakthrough innovation and measure the performance of that innovation in the marketplace. In other words, the System lays out an entire business system and strategy for actually doing breakthrough innovation.
Figure 3-1. Six subsystems comprise the CIMS systems for industrial innovation.
The six subsystems are organized in three modules (Fig. 3-1) constituting the principal steps in the overall process of breakthrough innovation. The System for Industrial Innovation is introduced in Chapter 3 and then described in detail in Chapters 4, 5 and 6. In addition to providing a holistic approach to breakthrough innovation, these chapters provide users with a complete toolbox of innovation decision tools.
