Diffusion, or the widespread adoption of innovations, is a critical yet under-researched topic. There is a wide gap between development and successful adoption of an innovation. Therefore, a better understanding of why and how an innovation is adopted can help develop realistic management and business plans. Most books on this topic use a single-discipline approach to explain the diffusion of innovations. This book adopts a multi-disciplinary and managerial process approach to understanding and promoting the adoption of innovations, based on the latest research and practice. It will be of interest to graduates and researchers in marketing, product development and innovation courses. Contents: Generic Factors Influencing the Diffusion of Innovations:From Models to the Management of Diffusion (J Tidd)Understanding the Pre-diffusion Phases (J R Ortt)Achieving Adoption Network and Early Adopters Acceptance for Technological Innovations (F Frattini)Launch Strategies for New Product Success (S Hart & N Tzokas)Co-constructing the Brand and the Product (J K Christiansen et al.)Understanding Consumer Responses to Innovations (Q Wang)Developing Technical and Market Standards for Innovations (D Chiaroni & V Chiesa)Sector-Specific Dynamics of Diffusion:Diffusion of Pharmaceutical Innovations in Health Systems (R A Atun et al.)Diffusion of Telecommunications Technologies: A Study of Mobile Telephony (W-L Chu et al.)Diffusion of Environmental Products and Services — Towards an Institutions-Theoretic Framework: Comparing Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Diffusion Patterns in Japan and the US (K L Shum & C Watanabe)Prediction of Future Patterns of Diffusion:Forecasting Technology Diffusion (T Daim et al.)Modeling and Forecasting Diffusion (N Meade & T Islam) Readership: Graduates and researchers; students of marketing, product development and innovation courses.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Electronic Commerce, once thought of as futuristic buzzwords, is becoming a commonly used term. International newspapers, magazines, and the electronic media mention at least some forecast or news related to this subject on a daily basis. Nevertheless, a look at the growing numbers of consulting companies, that offer a variety of services relating to Electronic Commerce reveals the immense uncertainty companies are experiencing about what exactly Electronic Commerce is, and how they can implement it. While it seems that the importance of this issue in the business environment is widely accepted in the US, a recent study from Andersen Consulting (Andersen, 1998) shows that among European senior executives only 19% regard Electronic Commerce as a serious competitive threat to their business. Furthermore, only 39% are taking steps today to incorporate Electronic Commerce into their current operational strategies. There is a number of factors contributing to the "wait-and-see" attitude taken by executives and consumers as well. Executives tend to view the rise of Electronic Commerce as an external business environment issue, while consumers are concerned about security issues. These are still common views in the US. In European countries, a cultural problem stemming from a slowly changing and stable business environment adds to that problem. Fear of failing by trying a new approach, in most cases, overshadows the willingness to take new risks. Nevertheless, the uncertainty about the changes implied by Electronic Commerce are far-reaching and can be found in any country. With the increasing importance of the Internet, the business environment, as well as other areas in society, is about to fundamentally change. Old paradigms are no longer working in the evolving new business world, sometimes called digital economy. Electronic Commerce is the keyword that tries to capture the new paradigms which are not even clear yet. The only thing that is reliable and predictable about Electronic Commerce and the new economy, is change. Never before was it more important to be flexible and willing to take risks by trying new approaches. As businesses like to operate in a predictable environment where planning the future is easy, it becomes very difficult to adapt to the pace of change. Not only do businesses need new strategies, they also need to constantly reinvent themselves. Businesses need to realize, that it becomes necessary to accept [...]

Leverage digital technologies to achieve competitive advantage through market-leading processes, products and services, customer relationships, and innovation How does Information Technology enable competitive advantage? Digital Disciplines details four strategies that exploit today's digital technologies to create unparalleled customer value. Using non-technical language, this book describes the blueprints that any company, large or small, can use to gain or retain market leadership, based on insights derived from examining modern digital giants such as Amazon, Netflix, and Uber, established firms such as Burberry, GE, Nike, and Procter & Gamble, and lesser-known innovators such as Alvio, Fruition Sciences, Opower, and Quirky. Companies can develop a competitive edge through four digital disciplines—information excellence, solution leadership, collective intimacy, and accelerated innovation—that exploit cloud computing, big data and analytics, mobile and wireline networks, social media, and the Internet of Things. These four disciplines extend and update the value disciplines of operational excellence, product leadership, and customer intimacy originally defined by Michael Treacy and Fred Wiersema in their bestselling business classic The Discipline of Market Leaders. Operational excellence must now be complemented by information excellence—leveraging automation, information, analytics, and sophisticated algorithms to make processes faster, better, and more cost-effective, seamlessly fuse digital and physical worlds, and generate new revenue through techniques such as exhaust data monetization Product leadership must be extended to solution leadership—smart digital products and services ranging from wind turbines and wearables to connected healthcare, linked to each other, cloud services, social networks, and partner ecosystems, focused on customer outcomes and creating experiences and transformations Customer intimacy is evolving to collective intimacy—as face-to-face relationships not only go online, but are collectively analyzed to provide individually targeted recommendations and personalized services ranging from books and movies to patient-specific therapies Traditional innovation is no longer enough—accelerated innovation goes beyond open innovation to exploit crowdsourcing, idea markets, innovation networks, challenges, and contest economics to dramatically improve processes, products, and relationships This book provides a strategy framework, empirical data, case studies, deep insights, and pragmatic steps for any enterprise to follow and attain market leadership in today's digital era. It addresses improved execution through techniques such as gamification, and pitfalls to beware, including cybersecurity, privacy, and unintended consequences. Digital Disciplines can be exploited by existing firms or start-ups to disrupt established ways of doing business through innovative, digitally enabled value propositions to win in competitive markets in today's digital era.

Profiting from technological innovation is a key strategic challenge in technology-intensive industries because it requires not only scientific and engineering expertise but also an understanding of how business and legal factors facilitate commercialization. This volume presents a multidisciplinary view of issues in technology commercialization and entrepreneurship. First, the strategic options available to an innovating firm attempting to commercialize inventions are presented in the context of the legal system and the complementary assets needed for commercialization. Next, the benefits and liabilities associated with multidisciplinary commercialization teams are covered. The chapters on intellectual property include a basic guide to patents, designs, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets and marks, as well as an analysis of how these mechanisms can be viewed as complements in commercialization. Issues and challenges associated with US laws such as Bayh-Dole are covered. Three chapters cover elements of strategy including industry analysis and strategy, marketing strategy, alliances and other strategies for technology commercialization. The final chapters cover financial issues in commercialization, with a guide to different techniques used in valuing early stage technologies, steps in obtaining venture capital funding, and an analysis of the role of contracts and nondisclosure agreements in licensing of early stage inventions.

This book responds to a growing demand in the academic community for a focus on customer-related proactive behaviour in the study of radical innovation development, combining a thorough theoretical discussion with detailed international case studies considering the role of this proactivity in five firms engaged in the process. Unlike other studies in this area, this book demonstrates that anticipation plays an important role at the idea generation stage and Sandberg introduces a new way of describing a firm’s proactivity as a dynamic pattern. Furthermore, the deeper consideration of customer related proactivity contributes to the study of market orientation, which increasingly focuses on the proactive side.
