Innovaation alkulähteillä
Teknologiateollisuus ry
January 01, 2013
Innovaation alkulähteillä on innovaation kasvutarina. Miten ja miksi ideat syntyvät, minkälaisessa ympäristössä ne kasvavat ja kehittyvät ja miten niistä kypsyy kaupallistettuja innovaatioita.

Se kertoo myös, millaisia ihmisiä ja organisaatioita tarvitaan tähän ketjuun ja miten kansallinen tai kansainvälinen toimintaympäristö vaikuttaa innovaation kehittämiseen ja markkinapaikan löytymiseen.

Kirja kertoo tarinansa kolmentoista yritysesimerkin kautta. Ne edustavat eri toimialoja, erilaisia tuotteita tai palveluita ja katsovat innovaatiota erilaisista kuvakulmista.

Tarkoituksena on välittää parhaita käytäntöjä ja tapoja välttää sudenkuoppia, jotta suomalainen innovaatiotyö saavuttaa täyden potentiaalinsa sekä kääntää pääomavirrata takaisin kohti Suomea.

Kirja on tarkoitettu innovaatioiden edistämisestä kiinnostuneille niin yrityksissä, opetuslaitoksissa kuin valtionhallinnossakin. Se on kirjoitettu Teknologiateollisuus ry:n innovaatiotyöryhmän aloitteesta pääosin yrityksistä kootun talkooväen voimin. "Paljon on saavutettu, kun tiedetään mitä halutaan. Lisäksi tarvitaan into keksiä uutta", sanoi Alastair Pilkington, kirjan lasialan esimerkin innovaattori.

GROWTH AND INTERNATIONALIZATION STRATEGIES OF RAPIDLY GROWING AND INTERNATIONALIZING ENTERPRISES FROM CANADA AND FINLAND
The Administrative Sciences Association of Canada (ASAC)
October 01, 2009
This paper’s aim is to explore the patterns of growth and internationalization
strategies of rapidly-growing and internationalizing enterprises. After a review
of conventional strategic management and internationalization theories, this
paper proposes a new research perspective in terms of a well-practiced
conceptual framework anchored in the concepts of business model- and
strategic-logic-centered approaches. An in-depth and longitudinal study of 11
high-growth and rapidly-internationalizing case firms identifies five distinct
patterns of internationalization and growth: i) Concept Builders; ii) Business
Platform Builders with two variants; iia) Resource Breakthrough-based
platforms and iib) Product Breakthrough-based platforms; and iii) Open
Innovation Network Platform for Global sales. The paper examines the patterns
of strategies in the context of market situation and product-market evolution.
The discussion and conclusion further explore the findings and implications of
this paper.

TealBox.io combines the suggestion box with Kickstarter so that you can crowd­source improvement initiatives then focus in on the things your people back.

YOUR CHALLENGE

To achieve the full potential of employees and the quality of working life is based chiefly on combining technology, leadership, engagement, and motivation of staff to yield new products, services, and working practices.

We have a novel solution, which helps you to quickly and easily answer these questions:
- Can we get new ideas?
- How can everyone take ownership of new initiatives?
- Do employees want to drive these initiatives forward?

We have developed Tealbox.io with Futurice to address these questions.

With our tool, clients reach a participation level of 71%, and every leader has been surprised by how their people take ownership of new initiatives when given a chance.

Book a meeting and discuss it with us.

SCIENCE

I’m working with the critical aspects of shared leadership and the culture of experimentation. How to start the change towards self-organization and what are the fundamental problems during the journey. The research includes aspects such as inclusive decision making, teamwork, flat organizational structures, and it is associated with motivated employees and an inclination toward innovation and competitiveness.

GROWTH CULTURE

The culture of experimentation is a prerequisite for innovation to happen. If you do not dare to experiment, try out things that no one has tried before, and allow for people in your organization to admit when they have failed, you will never evolve and find new solutions to problems. Leadership is straightforward. The leadership style can be described as a “no bullshit” style, meaning that people care about results, and will often go directly to the point when a problem needs to be solved.
