Synopsis

The modern economy brings a multitude of challenges for organisations. Digital culture has taken over as a prime driver of consumer behaviour, startups are continuously disrupting traditional industries and organisations that were previously dominate players are going out of business.

Innovation has become a hot topic in boardrooms with 65% reporting Innovation as a ‘ Strategic Priority’ . Around the globe organizations fight to drive business and market success in the face of nimbler and aggressive competition. Opportunities and threats in industries or markets are quickly snapped up by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs or organizations that have built more agile cultures and capabilities. Applying pressure to business leaders to find new ways to compete.

Over the past few years a rising number of organizations have announced intentions to launch innovation labs, or partner with nimbler organizations to the pursuit of adjacent ornew value. It’ s evolved into a battlefield, full of attempts, failures and successes.

Today’ s leader needs new business designs, new tools and frameworks to steer their organization towards success. Innovation Wars looks at the models of successful organizations, mapping out a strategic roadmap to success. Innovation Wars is that roadmap.

The era of industrialized technology is quickly drawing to a close. The success stories of just ten years ago are facing a new enemy, one equipped with newer technology, empowered consumer voices and a connected economy. These market forces have driven the power back to the consumer, creating a platform for customer centric innovation.

Organizations that harness the power of the consumer voice find new ways to solve old problems, unlock market frustration and optimize convenience to new levels. Something we’ve witness the likes of Uber, Airbnb and Amazon do time and time again.

The modern organization needs to adapt or die. Embrace the methods of their competitors to rethink their core purpose and value proposition.

Innovation Wars is writing to be a guide book on a journey of transformation. The journey is one of self-reflection, curiosity and new pathways on the way to experimentation, strategic optionality and value proposition discovery. Throughout the journey, the reader is given practical tools they can apply in their current organization, and to the ideas they have for the future.

The tools and frameworks help reduce the guessing work out of strategy and market success, into a method of validation, option creation and value accounting. Given a clear map of value created, even pre-revenue. At the end of the journey, you will be equipped to ask the right questions of your industry and lead a journey of discovery within your organization.

Virtualbookworm Publishing logo Virtualbookworm Publishing

Virtualbookworm (VBW) Publishing was founded by a writer frustrated by the long wait time and occasional heartbreak often associated with the publishing industry. After researching the various "alternatives," he discovered a number of subsidy publishers that would publish any author ... for a price. Unfortunately, many reviewers (and readers) thumb their noses at books from such houses, since all it takes is cash to get published by them.

Then he discovered self publishing and the endless opportunities it presented. However, such a venture requires countless hours of research of printers, proofreaders, artists, etc. And after publication, even more time is consumed trying to market the book.

So, Virtualbookworm.com was established as a "clearinghouse" for authors, since it offers virtually everything under one roof. Although we now charge setup and design fees, those costs are kept to a minimum so as to cover all expenses. And, as with "traditional" publishers, we carefully review each manuscript and only offer contracts to authors who truly have exceptional manuscripts. We don't print garbage, and we want our authors to proudly say they were published by Virtualbookworm. If we accept your book for publication, you can rest assured that it will be sold next to other quality books, and not just work that had enough money behind it. And, you'll receive some of the best royalties in the business!

Since our initial costs are so low, we want your books to sell as much as you do.
