Within manufacturing, Lean has lead to significant results throughout the world. But what happens when Lean meets Innovation? Is the needed creativity destroyed, or can Lean make the results of the organization even better? In Lean Innovation, Claus Sehested and Henrik Sonnenberg reveal how a managed iteration between creativity and effectiveness can ensure that the visions of top management are realized through the innovation processes. Lean can elevate the innovation processes to a new level where they become a true strategic differentiator. The authors address the key challenges facing leaders of knowledge organizations, and present a number of principles which they can use to bring more leadership into the innovation work. They also discuss methods which can increase result focus and continuous learning in the core innovation processes. The book contains specific and practical examples from five companies who started on a Lean Innovation journey. Innovation Insights from Apple, Google, Toyota, IDEO and others are also included.

Do these comments sound familiar? We would love to be more innovative, but we don’t have the resources Innovation works in some companies; we just aren’t that creative We get some good ideas, but nothing ever happens with them Unfortunately, they reflect the general perception and environment for innovation in many firms today. In Lean Innovation: Understanding What's Next in Today's Economy, Barry Cross explores how to use Lean to free up resources from within the organization to support and ‘fund’ innovation and inspire a culture of creativity. Easy to read and humorous, Cross’ stories resonate and his tactics are very applicable. He demonstrates that you likely have the people needed to drive innovation. Based on Cross’s twenty-five years of experience, and filled with stories and anecdotes from a number of industries, the book presents a different look at innovation and how to recognize opportunities for moving past merely talking about innovation to action and making it a priority. The author examines roadblocks and how to use enablers like Lean to facilitate and focus the approach on driving the focus forward, to the place where creativity in our ranks is more important that responding to an email and where the organization isn’t afraid to make an existing product redundant in favor of a new opportunity.

As an IT professional I can feel the upheaval of the world economy, and the gap that is being created...this book is a compilation of my short notes on these trends. This book starts with a brush-up of popular Lean process improvement tools. In the second chapter, I have shared the concept of "Lean Innovation Approach" because I observed that existing innovation efforts of some enterprises lack two things: the vision and spirit of the entrepreneur and lean management. The third chapter is an overview of 'Knowledge and Innovation economy', the current economic trend. Last three chapters of this book cover the case study of those countries that are best examples of the spirit of enterprise- Israel, Singapore and India. Israel is a remarkable example of technological innovations; Singapore is one of the largest financial hub and India has emerged as a bright spot of hope for the world economy. I believe in the growth of a country, it is spirit and passion that matters, the leaders of these three countries have inspired their citizen through their actions and the results are phenomenal...

Utilize this comprehensive guide in your organization to create a corporate incubator that protects innovative ideas from oppressive corporate processes and culture and gives those ideas the resources and environment they need to grow and have the best possible chance to thrive. Innovation is hard. Ironically, innovation in a large enterprise can be even more difficult. Policies designed for mature businesses often crush emerging businesses along with the entrepreneurial spirit of the innovators. Procedures can make it difficult, even impossible, for innovative employees to get their ideas funded, or even seen. As a result, even companies with their roots in innovation can find themselves unable to innovate, with a devastating impact on employee morale and often resulting in the exodus of the most creative employees. In Lean Intrapreneurship the authors leverage decades of personal experience innovating in large enterprises to explore the root causes of failure to innovate in established organizations, and offer a solution to the innovator’s dilemma. The book includes a recipe for creating a repeatable program for innovating in large organizations, including tools, tips, and strategies developed by the authors as they created an innovative incubation program for a multi-billion-dollar technology company. It also offers a wealth of information to help aspiring intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs bring their ideas to life. What You’ll Learn Discover the most common reasons that innovation fails in established organizations Explore techniques to make innovative ideas a success Follow a recipe to create a program to enable innovation across your company Understand the power of transparency inside and outside an incubator Develop employees and foster a culture of innovation across your company Who This Book Is For Anyone with an innovative idea who wants to make it real but does not know where to begin; anyone struggling to innovate inside an established company; anyone who wishes to make their existing company more lean, agile, and efficient; anyone who wishes to start a program to incubate new, innovative ideas inside an established company

Most startups fail. But many of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach being adopted across the globe, changing the way companies are built and new products are launched. Eric Ries defines a startup as an organization dedicated to creating something new under conditions of extreme uncertainty. This is just as true for one person in a garage or a group of seasoned professionals in a Fortune 500 boardroom. What they have in common is a mission to penetrate that fog of uncertainty to discover a successful path to a sustainable business. The Lean Startup approach fosters companies that are both more capital efficient and that leverage human creativity more effectively. Inspired by lessons from lean manufacturing, it relies on “validated learning,” rapid scientific experimentation, as well as a number of counter-intuitive practices that shorten product development cycles, measure actual progress without resorting to vanity metrics, and learn what customers really want. It enables a company to shift directions with agility, altering plans inch by inch, minute by minute. Rather than wasting time creating elaborate business plans, The Lean Startup offers entrepreneurs—in companies of all sizes—a way to test their vision continuously, to adapt and adjust before it’s too late. Ries provides a scientific approach to creating and managing successful startups in a age when companies need to innovate more than ever.

Planning And Designing Healthcare Facilities

The planning and design of healthcare facilities has evolved over the previous decades from "function follows design" to "design follows function." Facilities stressed the functions of healthcare providers but patient experience was not fully considered. The design process has now crucially evolved, and currently, the impression a hospital conveys to its patients and community is the primary concern. The facilities must be welcoming, comfortable, and exude a commitment to patient well-being. Rapid changes and burgeoning technologies are now major considerations in facility design. Without flexibility, hospitals face quicker obsolescence if designs are not forward-thinking. Planning and Designing Healthcare Facilities: A Lean, Innovative, and Evidence-Based Approach explores recent developments in hospital design. Medical facilities have been adapted to the requirements of clinical functions. Recently, the needs of patients and clinical pathways have been recognized. With the patient at the center of the process, the flow of tasks becomes the guiding principle as hospital design must employ evidence-based thinking, and process management methods such as Lean become central. The authors explain new concepts to reduce healthcare delivery cost, but keep quality the primary consideration. Concepts such as sustainability (i.e., Green Hospitals) and the use of new tools and technologies, such as information and communication technology (ICT), Lean, and evidence-based planning and innovations are fully explained.

Goodbye, old-school branding. Hello, innovation. As much as traditional branding may flinch at the idea, the great brands emerging today are no longer being developed by a “brand genius” on the 40th floor of a Madison Avenue high rise. Today, great brand development isn’t about genius, it’s about the discovery of value. The Lean Brand is the first book to apply lean principles to the marketing black box of branding empowering innovators to experiment often, iterate quickly, and discover the winning relationship with their audience. Just as with “lean startup,” where you are attempting to eliminate the waste in building products no one wants, “lean branding” is about eliminating the waste of building a brand no one wants a relationship with. The cost of failing to innovate with your brand? Millions of dollars in lost sales, missed opportunities for growth, and countless unsatisfied customers. This is not new jargon for old thinking, but a fundamental shift in how brand development works. The Lean Brand is the new blueprint for building value-based relationships with passionate customers. Distilling years of experience on the front lines of startup marketing and the lean startup movement, Jeremiah Gardner teams up with New York Times bestselling author Brant Cooper to reveal: How to implement Lean Brand Innovation To Discover, Create & Deliver New ValueNew startup marketing techniques for Parallel Innovation between product management, brand strategy, and business cultureHow to optimize your branding strategy to discover, develop and build passionate customersHow startups can eliminate waste in their customer development and brand strategy using The Lean Brand FrameworkHow to use lean startup Viability Experiments to test and iterate your brand for high growthA set of practical tools called the Lean Brand Stack to help you iterate quickly, learn as much as you can, and build passionate relationships with your audienceGreat brands must do more than just satisfy customers; they must create passionate ones. The Lean Brand shows you how to develop meaningful relationships with your audience, based on a shared journey of value creation. Whether incrementally improving an existing brand, re-branding your enterprise, or building the next great startup, the winning relationship with your audience will come from a process of discovery. This book lays out a brand innovation framework for you to study, practice and iterate on, and eventually make your own.

Design for Lean Six Sigmais the only book that employs a "road-map" approach to DFSS, which allows corporate management to understand where they are in the process and to integrate DFSS methodology more fully into their overall business strategy. This is a similar approach to that used by Forrest Breyfogle in his successful book: "Implementing Six Sigma, 2E". This approach will allow corporate management to understand where they are in the process and to integrate DFSS methodology more fully into the overall business strategy. Another important aspect of this book is its coverage of DFSS implementation in a broad range of industries including service and manufacturing, plus the use of actual cases throughout.

This book is the disquisition of what I know and truly believe makes products a success and how you can replicate it within your company. What is this book about? Why should I read this book? Why did you write this book? These were the three questions I received from a good friend. So what is this book about my good friend asks? This book is like a cookbook with recipes for lean innovation, a collection of concrete techniques and strategies that are invaluable and lead to the same end: game-changing innovation. The book is a compilation of what I consider the fundamental models for lean innovation and some of my own complementary models for successful innovation1. A supplement to the existing international reference works on innovation (Alexander Osterwalder, Eric Ries, Ash Maurya, Clayton Christensen...) I will complement and adapt the existing tools and methods. Enhance their flavor “monter la sauce” as they say in France. The book is mainly a “how to” book and a “lessons learned” book, substantiated by good analysis and reflection. Like a chess book to improve your play this book will improve your innovation. The book provides an analysis of proven tactics and strategies on how to win the lean innovation game as well as a post mortem on why it is so often lost. Should you read this book? Here is some bad news, if you were hoping to improve on your innovation by spending more on R&D, it won’t work. The consulting giant PWC confirmed in its Global Innovation 1000 research that just increasing R&D resources will not solve the innovation problem ! The presented methodology can be quickly employed and implemented by the reader with the book as an instruction manual !
