The Innovator’s Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail – Clayton M. Christensen. One of my favorite innovation books. The Innovator’s Dilemma demonstrates how incumbents have historically been disrupted by more focused and nimble technology companies.

The theory behind the book was widely adopted by the tech sector. Investigating the effect of product innovation strategy on the performance of new technology ventures in China, we found the innovation-performance link was contingent on both environmental factors, including environmental turbulence and institutional support, and the relationship-based strategies of the ventures, such as strategic alliances for product development and political.

Innovation is inherently risky, and firms may invest considerable time and money in technology, and suppliers.

New product development cannot be managed successfully without a clear understanding of customers and their changing needs. Much of the focus of this book is on ways and means to satisfy customer needs. As the 10 most important product innovations of show—from plant-based burgers to alternate reality headsets—the world still has plenty of room for innovation in meatspace.

Describes principles and methodologies necessary to build efficient and highly productive work systems in high tech organizations that must develop and deploy new products in a timely fashion with competitive advantage.

Presents techniques applicable to small high tech consumer products or large complex systems requiring cost control, waste minimization and rapid product development. Defining Technological Innovation technology into the meaning of innovation, and defining the term 'Technological Innovation', the following changes to the above occur: • Generate or realise a new idea, based on technology, capability or knowledge (Invention) • Develop this into a reality or product.

Our “technology sweeps” unloose recently introduced technologies and those that are already in use in other industries. Product innovation is the development and launch of a product or service that improves things by 10x or more.

Where most products are developed to establish a unique position in a crowded market, product innovation may aim to replace the entire market with something new. This is a difficult thing to achieve and true innovations are rare. The following are common types of product innovation.
