Breakthrough: stories and strategies of radical innovation
A breakthrough creates something new or satisfies a previously undiscovered need. Radical breakthroughs often have uses and effects far beyond what their inventors had in mind and can launch new industries or transform existing ones. Our capacity for breakthroughs depends on a combination of science, imagination and business; the next waves of innovation will come from organizations that get this combination right. The stories in this book, told by repeat inventors and managers of technology, uncover the best practices for inventing the future.
