Innovation

2014, Shroff/O'Reilly, No, First, New, India, Humble
How well does your organization respond to changing market conditions, customer needs, and emerging technologies when building software-based products? This practical guide presents Lean and Agile principles and patterns to help you move fast at scale and demonstrates why and how to apply these methodologies throughout your organization, rather than with just one department or team.

Through case studies, you’ll learn how successful enterprises have rethought everything from governance and financial management to systems architecture and organizational culture in the pursuit of radically improved performance. Adopting Lean will take time and commitment, but it’s vital for harnessing the cultural and technical forces that are accelerating the rate of innovation.
  • Discover how Lean focuses on people and teamwork at every level, in contrast to traditional management practices

  • Approach problem-solving experimentally, by exploring solutions, testing assumptions, and getting feedback from real users

  • Lead and manage large-scale programs in a way that empowers employees, increases the speed and quality of delivery, and lowers costs

  • Learn how to implement ideas from the DevOps and Lean Startup movements even in complex, regulated environments
About the Author
Jez Humble is co-author of Continuous Delivery, the Jolt-Award winning book in Martin Fowler’s signature series. He has been talking about how to do Lean Startup in enterprises since the Agile 2011 conference (you can see his talk here: http://www.infoq.com/presentations/?Innovation-at-Scale-using-Lean-Thinking).He works for ThoughtWorks, which has been consulting around Continuous Delivery and Lean and Agile software development in enterprises for many years.

Joanne Molesky is a Principal Associate/Consultant with ThoughtWorks, where she works on internal IT Risk and Compliance, and provides consulting services to clients in the area of continuous delivery and process improvement. She made a career shift from Health Care to IT about 20 years ago, and found transferable skills such as effective communication, collaboration and focusing on the root cause of problems to be very useful. Although she finds herself talking mostly about IT Risk these days, Joanne considers herself to be an IT generalist, which allows her to take the bigger picture view of processes and how they relate to Governance, Risk and Compliance within organizations.

Barry O'Reilly works with ThoughtWorks, consulting with leading organizations on continuous improvement using lean and agile practices and principles. He has been (often simultaneously) an entrepreneur, employee, and consultant. After getting his feet wet as a developer at several startups, including one of Europe’s first mobile gaming development companies, his focus shifted towards the enterprise where he has explored the intersection of business model innovation, product development and organisation culture.Adapting lessons learnt from his experiences, Barry began working with organisations to accelerate innovation and product delivery. He has helped deliver products within many different industries and technical environments, for companies based in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. A frequent speaker and blogger on industry topics related to innovation, organizational design and strategy, he admits to being a serial Post-It user.

In most simplified way, this book explains the Inner Dynamics of the concept of Innovation from A to Z.

In USA, Innovation supports at least 40 million jobs and contribute 34.8 % US GDP. South Korea, the Top most Innovative country of the World could raise GDP (PPP) per capita to $33140. India is just at $5410
(123rd position in the world). Innovation is must for economic growth & to become developed nation. But in the Innovation Decade (2011-2020), India slipped 10 ranks (76th position) in Global Innovation Index 2014. How to improve this situation? How to introduce the culture of Innovation in India? What are the root causes of poor Innovation Ecosystem in India? What is the importance of Innovation Clusters? What are the best practices all over the world? How to introduce innovation in industry and R&D labs? How to introduce innovation in Academia? How to enhance employability through Innovation Competencies? I would like to answer these question with the help of hundreds of interesting case studies.

I would like to ignite human brain for innovation through this venture. I am sure once you read few pages of this book, you will be in love with this book. It’s for everybody; from industry to academia; from government authorities to office staff; from parents to students; from faculty of medicine or engineering to faculty of Arts; from small scale businessman to corporate house. I have written this book in such way that everybody should be benefited and start thinking creatively. Before my final departure from this world, I would like to see our nation as Developed Nation. It can happen only through Innovation.

I am sure, after “Skill India” and “Make in India” the next slogan will be “Innovation India”.

Innovation - Growth Engine for Nation - Nice Buzzword but Often Misunderstood
