Ronald Jonash, Tom Sommerlatte (at Arthur D. Little)

In today’s constantly shifting marketplace, “innovation” has become the catchword of companies large and small. In The Innovation Premium, Ron Jonash and Tom Sommerlatte draw on years of research and experience to demonstrate-for the first time-that those companies that consistently achieve innovation leadership enjoy measurable advantages, including an average 15 percent increase in shareholder returns. Bridging the gap between the technological and organizational aspects of innovation, the authors show managers at all levels how to move beyond continuous improvement of products and processes to create the “Next Generation Enterprise,” an organization that thrives on innovation and knows how to harness it to create and capture value, spark and speed growth, and achieve the highest standards of performance.

When it comes to big breakthrough ideas, Hitendra doesn’t believe in that one “Eureka” moment. He thinks that all of us have the potential to create new, great ideas and the capacity to make it reality one day. So if everyone has the potential to have great ideas, why aren’t we all becoming genius inventors? Hitendra is trying to figure out if some people can connect the dots faster because they have more dots to begin with – and how we can all get more.
