Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Path-breaking innovations are about instigating fundamental changes in people, organizations, communities, and economies. They are complex, continuous, and evolutionary processes that take considerable time, resources, and the efforts of many individuals and organizations to be accomplished successfully. Representing distinct departures from existing practices, they differ from other types of innovation, such as product extensions and incremental improvements. By examining path-breaking innovation processes through in-depth analysis of several large-scale initiatives around the world, the authors explore how profound changes in product, process, and service can be explained and managed, and consider the practical implications for scientific, organizational, institutional, and political leaders concerned with channeling innovation toward economic growth.

In-depth analysis of science and technology initiatives at CERN-ATLAS, Airbus, and in stem cell research, the authors explore and illuminate how profound changes in product, process, and service can be explained and managed. Covering such issues as organizational culture, types of knowledge, and large-scale project management and resource distribution, the authors consider the practical implications of radical innovation for scientific, organizational, institutional, and political leaders concerned with channeling innovation toward economic growth.

Book News Annotation:

Liyanage (Macquarie Institute for Innovation, U. of Macquarie, Australia), Wink (international economics, U. of Applied Sciences, HTWK, Germany) and Nordberg (resources coordinator, ATLAS project, CERN, Switzerland) explore the connection between scientific progress and patterns of innovations by investigating three central programs: the particle physics experiments in the CERN-ATLAS collaboration, aviation research at the Airbus consortium, and biotechnology advances in stem cell research groups. Describing "path-breaking innovation" as a constellation of events, situations and manifestations of change, learning, leadership and motivation, the authors organize their study around the themes of change processes, work and production philosophies, strategies and collaborations, change environment, spatial dimension, leadership and funding. They conclude that path-breaking innovations are based on good science embedded in a social-system of openness, tolerance, respect and patience.
