Profiting from Innovation in China

China is dramatically catching up and is rapidly becoming a leading technological innovator on the global scale. The number of Chinese firms with global ambitions is growing fast, more and more technological innovation is coming from China, and the number of patents in China is also growing steadily. The negative side of this development is the still insufficient protection of intellectual property in China. The phenomenon of counterfeits originating from China has increased constantly over the past two decades. Moreover, within the past ten years the scale of intellectual property theft has risen exponentially in terms of its sophistication, volume, the range of goods, and the countries affected. This book addresses managers dealing with innovation in China, and offers concrete advice on how Western firms can benefit from these innovations. Among others, it provides examples and checklists to help decision-makers active in China.​

Fueled Up

The first gasoline was sold in pharmacies--but this was to change in the 1950s. As the car experienced its great rise in popularity, gas stations began to pop up like mushrooms out of the ground. Futuristic and progressive, these modern temples of mobility became roadside reference points for young people hungry for independence, and to everyone who strove for a sense of freedom.It's a Gas! explores the surprisingly diverse world of the gas station--a functional high tech temple, a transit zone, a film set, a converted residence, or an abandoned ruin hidden in a backyard. The world of pumps is full of surprises, ready to be discovered in this book.The preface was written by US-American talkshow legend and passionate car collector Jay Leno. Sascha Friesike, Assistant Professor of Digital Innovation at VU University in Amsterdam and associated researcher at Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society Berlin, is the author of the crime series Grobmann und Pieper and photographer of gas stations.

Modern information and communication technologies, together with a cultural upheaval within the research community, have profoundly changed research in nearly every aspect. Ranging from sharing and discussing ideas in social networks for scientists to new collaborative environments and novel publication formats, knowledge creation and dissemination as we know it is experiencing a vigorous shift towards increased transparency, collaboration and accessibility. Many assume that research workflows will change more in the next 20 years than they have in the last 200. This book provides researchers, decision makers, and other scientific stakeholders with a snapshot of the basics, the tools, and the underlying visions that drive the current scientific (r)evolution, often called ‘Open Science.’

Alle Unternehmen wollen innovativ sein, nur wenigen gelingt es. Warum schaffen einzelne Unternehmen echte Durchbrüche, während die meisten nicht über lustlose Me-too-Produkte hinauskommen? Innovation lässt sich nicht einfach verordnen - aber es gibt Erfolgsprinzipien, denen die besten Unternehmen folgen und die ihnen immer wieder einen Innovationsvorsprung gegenüber ihren lahmen Wettbewerbern verschaffen. Dieses Werk zeigt ebenso lehrreich wie unterhaltsam die 33 besten dieser Erfolgsprinzipen wie beispielsweise das Ford-Prinzip, das darstellt, wie wichtig Lösungen sind, die nachhaltig begeistern, das Kleine-Schwarze-Prinzip, das auf Produkte verweist, die genau das einhalten, was der Kunde braucht, oder das Aikido-Prinzip, das zeigt, dass es sich lohnt anders zu denken.

Der Kreativcode

Wir alle tragen den Kreativcode in uns, doch wir lassen unsere Kreativität zu oft verkommen. Im Laufe unserer Kindheit, unserer Jugend und auch noch im Erwachsenenalter wird sie durch die unterschiedlichsten Zwänge unterdrückt, bis sie vollkommen verschwunden ist. Doch wer nicht versucht, kreativ zu sein und neue Problemlösungen zu entwickeln, läuft Gefahr, bald selbst zum Problem zu werden. Unser Kreativcode lässt sich auf sieben grundlegende Eigenschaften reduzieren, auf sieben Eigenschaften, die jeweils einen ganz eigenen Charakter darstellen: der Künstler, der Rebell, der Enthusiast, der Asket, der Träumer, der Imitator und der Virtuose. Wenn wir alle sieben Eigenschaften vereinen, dann sind wir KREATIV! Dieses Buch zeigt – überaus anschaulich und unterhaltsam – was diese Charaktere ausmacht und wie sie der Leser selbst entschlüsseln kann.

Management of the Fuzzy Front End of Innovation

This book shows the patterns of the fuzzy front end of innovation and how it can be managed successfully. Topics in this book cover traditional instruments and processes such as technology monitoring, market-oriented research management, lead-user developments, but also modern approaches such as frontloading, user community-driven innovation, crowdsourcing, anthropological expeditions, technological listening posts in global R&D settings, cross-industry innovation processes, open innovation, and IP cycle management. Contributions are based on latest research and cases studies on this new paradigm. The authors investigate this phenomenon, linking the practice of the early innovation phase to the established body of innovation research. Conceptional articles complement case studies to provide the reader with insight on managing the fuzzy front end of innovation. Lessons learned with success factors and checklists complement each chapter.​
