Abstract

The environment in which a company or organization operates today can be characterized
by accelerating change, the globalization of markets, the emergence of new technologies and
competitors, new regulatory requirements and ever more demanding users and citizens. In this
environment, the ability to innovate becomes a key success factor for most organizations. They
seek to continuously create and realize value by introducing new or changed products, services,
processes, models, methods, etc.
The reasons for an organization to innovate are many and can include to increase revenues,
growth and profitability, reduce costs and waste, increase the satisfaction of users, customers and
citizens, motivate employees and attract partners, collaborators and funding, and so on. Engaging
in innovation activities is thus a way for an organization to be future focused and effectively
deliver on its overall objectives to secure prosperity and longer-term relevance and survival.
The ability to innovate and to make it a core organizational capability is increasingly becoming
the most important differentiator and dominant success factor of organizations. Failing to
capture new opportunities and to respond to innovation challenges may consequently lead to
stagnation, irrelevance and ultimately to the demise of the organization.

Abstract

Ideen werden am Anfang gerne in Frage gestellt. Die Macher des StreetScooter sind anders herangegangen, sie haben den Status quo, der sich ihnen bot, in Frage gestellt. Der herkömmliche Innovationsprozess bei der Entwicklung neuer, nachhaltiger Produkte war in ihren Augen viel zu aufwendig und zu teuer. In der Automobilindustrie dauert er viele Jahre und verschlingt Milliarden. Wie ein radikal anderes Innovationsdenken zu bezahlbarer Funktionalität führt, zeigt die rasante Entwicklung eines ungewöhnlichen Unternehmens, das aus der Rheinisch-Westfälisch-Technischen Hochschule Aachen hervorgegangen ist und heute der Deutschen Post DHL gehört. Es ist eine e-mobile Erfolgsstory über ein Fahrzeug, das kundenspezifisch, wirtschaftlich, ökologisch, flexibel, sicher und zuverlässig ist.People love to challenge ideas at the start. The makers of StreetScooter approached things differently: they challenged the status quo they were presented with instead. In their view, the conventional process of innovation in developing new, sustainable products was much too complicated and too expensive. In the automobile industry, this takes many years and costs billions. The rapid development of an unusual company emerging from the RWTH Aachen University and now part of Deutsche Post DHL demonstrates how a radically different innovative thinking leads to affordable functionality, It is an e-mobile success story about a vehicle that is customized, economic, ecological, flexible, safe, and reliable.

Abstract

This book gathers pioneering experiences based on the same concept: innovation. According to Schumpeter's research, there would be four types of innovations: product or service innovation (market introduction of a new type of good), process innovation (introduction of a new type of production), market innovation (introduction of a new market in a country or a new market structure), and innovation of matter (introduction of a new raw material). This book contains ten chapters organized in four main sections: (a) ""Strategic Issues,"" (b) ""Risk Management in Innovative Projects,"" (c) ""Economic Issues and Financing Innovation,"" and (d) ""Leadership and Teamwork.""

Abstract

In a global world, where the acceleration of technological changes is happening in all industrial sectors, a special focus is forced on innovation and creativity. The book has gathered a small number of sectors where innovation is being the main vector to achieve the competitiveness that companies are craving. The motivation to choose these sectors has been preceded by a careful selection in which we wanted to pick up those in which innovation is a key today. Different aspects push to create and innovate: the environment in general and in particular climate change is forcing to rethink sectors such as energy, infrastructure, water, biotechnology, materials, defense, education, or health. Dear reader, in your hand is a work that reflects the same spirit of the human being: curiosity and eagerness to overcome have allowed humanity to have evolved and still continue today.
