Our new book is out there! Discontinuous Innovation: Learning to Manage the Unexpected

This book is based on the findings, issues and questions related to an ongoing decade-old research project named The Discontinuous Innovation Lab (DI-Lab). The research project focuses on discontinuous innovation in more than thirteen countries, most of which are European, and provides useful insights into its different challenges. It also raises several questions related to the subject, some of which are: How do firms pick up weak signals on emerging - and possibly radically different - innovation? What should firms do when these weak signals hit their mainstream process?

2013/12/03 16:30
Radical social change and impactful solutions don’t come from thinking small and replicating old solutions.

This means looking at problems through a different lens and embracing new approaches. At this exclusive event, we will discuss how the development of big ideas into solutions that are making a difference, can be achieved in areas ranging from healthcare to crime reduction.
