Urenio Watch Watch: Innovation

Accentuating the Innovative

Last month, Booz&Co strategy+business magazine published several articles highlighting ways to improve the success of R&D and reduce the risk of new ventures.

In “The Three Paths to Open Innovation“, Barry Jaruzelski and Richard Holman of Booz & Company show why some companies should look outside their boundaries for new ideas and others should not. With Omar Daud, they describe “Next-Generation Product Development“, which can create order out of chaos. New Thought Leader interviews feature open innovation expert Henry Chesbrough and 3M Chief Technology Officer Fred J. Palensky. Finally, “The Missing Link in Innovative Research“, by Anna Pettersson and August Vlak, offers a solution to pharma companies’ R&D malaise in better deployment of middle managers.
