What Successful Innovators See That Others Miss. How can great companies do everything right--identify real customer needs, deliver excellent innovations, beat their competitors to market--and still fail.
The truth is that many companies fail because they focus too intensely on their own innovations, while neglecting the ecosystems on which their success depends. In our increasingly interdependent world, winning requires more than just delivering on your own promises. It means ensuring that a host of partners--some visible, some hidden--deliver on their promises, too. Ron Adner draws on over a decade of research and field testing to reveal the hidden structure of success, from Michelin's failed run-flat tires to Apple's path to market dominance. "The Wide Lens "offers a powerful new set of frameworks and tools that will multiply your odds of innovation success.
"Ron Adner is a breakthrough thinker. He zooms out to see more clearly how--and why--some innovations take hold, and others do not." --Jim Collins, author of "Good to Great"
â€œThis is a path-breaking perspective on innovation. Adner's tools guide you to ask the right questions to protect you from making mistakes that condemn so many innovations to failure.â€ â€”Clayton M. Christensen, Kim B. Clark Professor, Harvard Business School; author of "The Innovator's Dilemma"
