Winning At Innovation

The A-to-F Model

WINNER OF THE CHARTERED MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE (CMI) INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP AWARD AT THE CMI BUSINESS BOOK THE YEAR AWARDS 2013 Innovate or Die! Companies that cannot innovate and develop new products, strategies and technologies to keep ahead in today's fastpaced market will not succeed. Winning at Innovation presents a groundbreaking new model for successful marketing advancement from two world-leading experts in marketing and innovation, Fernando Trías de Bes and Philip Kotler. Innovation is a responsibility normally assigned to R&D departments but this is not enough. Companies need a systematic framework so innovation can occur at any level of the organization. The A-F Model is a step-by-step process for developing a successful culture of innovation, bringing together the different individuals and groups across the organization for ideas to be created, developed and implemented. Offering flexibility, the model allows a back and forth flow of ideas and creativity to adapt to changing circumstances. Using this model, companies can learn how to make their innovation processes more effective, more sustainable, and more successful. Innovation must be a priority for organizations who want to be ready to grow and develop in post-recession economies. Trías de Bes and Kotler present a unique model for innovation for all companies that want to succeed in the global field.

The Religion of Law

Race, Citizenship and Children's Belonging

How is religion, particularly non-Christianness, conceptualised and represented in English law? What is the relationship between religion, race, ethnicity and culture in these conceptualisations? What might be the socio-political effects of conceptualising religion in particular ways? This book addresses these key questions in two areas of law relating to children. The first case study focuses on child welfare cases and reveals how the boundaries between race and theological notions of religion as belief and practice are blurred. Non-Christians are also often perceived as uncivilized but also, at times, racial otherness can be erased and assimilated. The second examines religion in education and the increasing focus on 'common values'. It demonstrates how non-Christian faith schools are deemed as in need of regulation, while Christian schools are the benchmark of good citizenship. In addition, values discourse and citizenship education provide a means to 'de-racialise' non-Christian children in the ongoing construction of the nation. Central to this analysis is a focus on religion as a socio-political, contingent, fluid and invented concept.

strategic activity, the manager focuses on tactical or operational activity. The
entrepreneur formulates a strategy, the manager implements that strategy.
Conceptually the distinction is clear. The situation from the perspective of strategy
is also clear. The strategist must allow for both entrepreneurial and managerial
inputs: • Strategists must sometimes play the role of entrepreneur; they must be
entrepreneurial in their attitudes, confronting the need to innovate as part of
strategy making.
