Design Innovation: Managing Creativity from Ideas to Reality

Innovation is hard work! While it is often attributed to individuals and inspired discoveries, the reality is quiet different. Certainly, the people are critical assets. But today, given the complexities of the marketplace and the interdisciplinary requirements of products and services, most innovations emerge from teams rather from exalted soloists. Such groups need an environment that nurtures talents; they need the understanding and the tools to communicate across professional boundaries; and they need leadership and a strategy to integrate the skills and ideas that generate success. These are the themes discussed in this volume, which explores the demanding quest for innovation.
