This book shows in a practice-oriented way how leading experts at innovative firms generate new ideas and develop successful business models. The book includes contributions by renowned technology experts and innovative companies.
The book is for professionals as well as researchers and students. It focuses on innovation management, idea generation and business model innovation.
