TL;DR: The purpose of this study is to provide the knowledge to understand and the skills to manage innovation at the operational and strategic levels to improve the competitiveness of firms and effectiveness of other organizations.
Abstract: Now in its seventh edition, Managing Innovation: Integrating Technological, Market and Organizational Change enables graduate and undergraduate students to develop the unique skill set and the foundational knowledge required to successfully manage innovation, technology, and new product development. This bestselling text has been fully updated with new data, new methods, and new concepts while still retaining its holistic approach the subject. The text provides an integrated, evidence-based methodology to innovation management that is supported by the latest academic research and the authors’ extensive experience in real-world management practice. Students are provided with an impressive range of learning tools—including numerous case studies, illustrative examples, discussions questions, and key information boxes—to help them explore the innovation process and its relation to the markets, technology, and the organization. “Research Notes" examine the latest evidence and topics in the field, while "Views from the Front Line" offer insights from practicing innovation managers and connect the covered material to actual experiences and challenges. Throughout the text, students are encouraged to apply their knowledge and critical thinking skills to business model innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship, service innovation, and many more current and emerging approaches and practices.

TL;DR: In this paper, Tidd, Bessant & Pavitt provide an integrative approach to the management of innovation at the operational and strategic levels, integrating market, organizational and technological change to improve the competitiveness of firms and effectiveness of other organizations.
Abstract: Managing Innovation provides readers with the knowledge to understand, and the skills to manage, innovation at the operational and strategic levels. Specifically, it integrates the management of market, organizational and technological change to improve the competitiveness of firms and effectiveness of other organizations. The management of innovation is inherently interdisciplinary and multifunctional and Tidd, Bessant & Pavitt provide an integrative approach to the subject. Two new perspectives are introduced through which to re-examine material presented in each chapter: sustaining versus disruptive innovation (a greater emphasis will be placed on disruptive innovation) and organizations versus networks (greater discussion of the network issues raised in each chapter). Provides more treatment of innovation in services. Greater internationalization of case examples will be provided e.g. more examples will be included from Asia and Latin America. Introduces discussion of the relationship between innovation and the environment.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors lay the foundations of a theory that can be used to interpret innovation processes in the service sector based on Lancaster's definition of the product (in both manufacturing and services) as a set of service characteristics.
TL;DR: This paper addresses the trends of manufacturing service transformation in big data environment, as well as the readiness of smart predictive informatics tools to manage big data, thereby achieving transparency and productivity.
TL;DR: A broadened view of service innovation is offered--one grounded in service-dominant logic--that transcends the tangible--intangible and producer--consumer divides that have plagued extant research in this area.
Abstract: In this article, we offer a broadened view of service innovation--one grounded in service-dominant logic--that transcends the tangible--intangible and producer--consumer divides that have plagued extant research in this area. Such a broadened conceptualization of service innovation emphasizes (1) innovation as a collaborative process occurring in an actor-to-actor (A2A) network, (2) service as the application of specialized competences for the benefit of another actor or the self and as the basis of all exchange, (3) the generativity unleashed by increasing resource liquefaction and resource density, and (4) resource integration as the fundamental way to innovate. Building on these core themes, we offer a tripartite framework of service innovation: (1) service ecosystems, as emergent A2A structures actors create and recreate through their effectual actions and which offer an organizing logic for the actors to exchange service and cocreate value; (2) service platforms, which enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of service exchange by liquefying resources and increasing resource density (facilitating easy access to appropriate resource bundles) and thereby serve as the venue for innovation; and (3) value cocreation, which views value as cocreated by the service offer(er) and the service beneficiary (e.g., customer) through resource integration and indicate the need for mechanisms to support the underlying roles and processes. In discussing these components, we consider the role of information technology--both as an operand resource and as an operant resource--and then examine the implications for research and practice in digitally enabled service innovation.
