In this book, author Stephan Scholtissek examines innovations as they relate to companies in the energy and natural resources sectors. These highly innovative sectors are undergoing massive change as the balance of power shifts towards emerging economies and as the world looks to a range of low carbon technologies. Scholtissek argues that innovation is the only answer for competitive success in an increasingly fast-paced world where the essential ingredients of business can no longer be used to differentiate companies.
Innovation Excellence sheds light on different forms of innovation and argues that R&D resources must be extended across all these forms. Scholtissek includes a number of detailed case studies from the energy and natural resources industries that demonstrate leading practice. The book addresses an end-to-end innovation framework that helps the innovation process run more smoothly. It also includes the key success factors that increase the likelihood of success of an innovation in a given company. Finally the author draws conclusions regarding the future of innovation.
