Start your review of Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Practice and Principles. Sep 21, Herve rated it really liked it. The first chapters were painful even if brilliant. I understood there that innovation is a process which will be successful if carefully planned and managed.
Fortunately, chapter 9 completely changed my perception when the author dealt with knowledge-based innovation, which includes innovations based on science and technology. So let me summarize the main points of this chapter: 1- the characteristics of knowledge-based innovation: a.
The only chance of surviving is to have a strong management and resources,… and luck; c. Even market research does not work with these innovations and the reason why an innovation is accepted or not is also unpredictable. I have to admit this confirms an intuition I had since my VC years: you have to make a bet and then work hard. But there is no way, you can really plan the success of knowledge-based innovations. Innovation has to be decentralized, ad hoc, autonomous, specific. It had better start small, tentative, flexible.
But it is a delusion. In fact a policy which promotes high-tech and high-tech alone will not even produce high tech. All it can come with is another expensive flop, another Concorde. Amazing read for entrepreneurs with countless examples of innovative ideas and strategies. View 1 comment. Even though this book is relatively old, its principles apply in every era.
Drucker presents innovation as an ageless art form, in which all that changes is the approach. Any business owner, or out of the box thinker, should definitely read this book.

I picked this up with the intent to read it and have it under my belt so I could say I've read it just because it is a "classic". I expected a lot of out of date references and antiquated principles of innovation. I did find A LOT of out of date references to companies that are no longer the innovation powerhouses that they once were which just highlights the transient nature of being an innovation factory , but the principles and practices seem as true as ever and I don't think it is too bold I picked this up with the intent to read it and have it under my belt so I could say I've read it just because it is a "classic".
I did find A LOT of out of date references to companies that are no longer the innovation powerhouses that they once were which just highlights the transient nature of being an innovation factory , but the principles and practices seem as true as ever and I don't think it is too bold to say they are the roots of almost everything that has been written on innovation since.
Below are some highlights: 7 Sources for Innovative Opportunity: 1. The unexpected - the unexpected success, the unexpected failure, the unexpected outside event; 2.
The incongruity - between reality as it actually is and reality as is assumed to be or as it "ought to be"; 3. Innovation based on process need; 4. Changes in industry structure or market structure that catch everyone unawares; 5. Demographics population changes ; 6. Changes in perception, mood, and meaning; 7. New knowledge, both scientific and nonscientific. Intuition is not good enough I'll go out, look around, ask questions and listen. Users are always aware of it.
Every eye surgeon knew about the discomfort he felt when he had to cut eye muscle- and talked about it. What was lacking, however, was someone willing to listen, somebody who took seriously what everybody proclaims: That the purpose of a product or a service is to satisfy the customer.
If this axiom is accepted and acted upon, using incongruity as an opportunity for innovation becomes fairly easy- and highly effective. There is, however, one serious limitation. The incongruity is usually available only to people within a given industry or service. It is not something that somebody from the outside is likely to spot, to understand, and hence is able to exploit.
For a good list of DO's on innovation start on pg. This cannot be stressed too often. It should do only one thing, otherwise, it confuses Why didn't I think of it? Don't try to be clever 2. Don't diversify, don't splinter, don't try to do too many things at once 3. Don't try to innovate for the future. Innovate for the present! The one thing that can be guaranteed in any kind of operation is the daily crisis.
The daily crisis cannot be postponed, it has to be dealt with right away. An the existing operation demands high priority and deserves it. The new always looks so small, so puny, so unpromising next to the size and performance of maturity It thus takes special effort for the existing business to become entrepreneurial and innovative. He takes this really seriously. The correct assumption in an entrepreneurial society is that individuals will have to learn new things well after they have become adults- and maybe more than once.
The correct assumption is that what individuals have learned by age twenty-one will begin to become obsolete five to ten years later and will have to be replaced- or at least refurbished- by new learning, new skills, new knowledge The assumption from now on has to be that individuals on their own will have to find, determine, and develop a number of 'careers' during their working lives. Mar 05, Mohammad Shaker rated it it was amazing.
As always, Peter Drucker is one of my favourites on the subject. A book from the 80s that still a great read today, on a very changing and challenging subject such as entrepreneurship, is a sole indicator of how great the book is. Sep 01, Goktug Yilmaz rated it really liked it Shelves: audio.
It lies in its success in the marketplace. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. That is incompetence. Customers pay only for what is of use to them and gives them value.
Innovation involves finding a new and better way of doing something. Much of our modern society is based on innovations that have occurred in the past that provide us with the standard of living we enjoy today. Entrepreneurship and innovation are companion terms. Entrepreneurship involves looking for a new innovation and taking advantage of it. Peter Drucker is a leading authority on entrepreneurship and innovation. Below Drucker outlines seven sources or places to look for innovative opportunities. Then he outlines five steps to follow to take advantage of an innovative opportunity.
In business, innovation rarely springs from a flash of inspiration. It arises from a cold-eyed analysis of seven kinds of opportunities. Do I have the right temperament? A commitment to the systematic search for imaginative and useful ideas is what successful entrepreneurs share—not some special genius or trait. Most innovations result from a conscious, purposeful search for opportunities—within the company and the industry as well as the larger social and intellectual environment.
It is, of course, a deadly temptation. The enterprise that does not innovate inevitably ages and declines. And in a period of rapid change, such as the present, an entrepreneur period, the decline will be fast.
Entrepreneurship comes from entrepreneur, anglicized from the original French word. It means someone who undertakes something. Merriam-Webster defines "entrepreneur" as "one who assumes the risk and management of business; enterprise; undertaker. Academic students of the entrepreneurial phenomenon have emphasized different aspects of behavior in business.

Learn the universal principles behind every successful business, then use these ideas to make more money, get more done, and have more fun in your life and work. Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs. Drucker's Innovation and Entrepreneurship was the first book to discussion business innovation and entrepreneurship in a systematic way. By examining where innovation and entrepreneurial activity happens, you'll be able to create and manage a successful entrepreneurial business without undue risk. Drucker discusses seven clear signs that indicate opportunity for business innovation: 1 unexpected success, 2 incongruity between reality and ideal, 3 identification of an unmet need, 4 changes in industry or market structure, 5 demographic shifts, 6 changes in public perception, and 7 discovery of new knowledge. By watching for these signs to identify an opportunity, then creating and acting on a systematic plan to deliver a valuable product, businesses can create new value.
