The innovator's way essential practices for successful innovation by Peter J Denning( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Innovation is the ruling buzzword in business today. Technology companies invest billions in developing new gadgets; business leaders see innovation as the key to a competitive edge; policymakers craft regulations to foster a climate of innovation. And yet businesses report a success rate of only four percent for innovation initiatives. Can we significantly increase our odds of succeeding at innovation? In The Innovator's Way, innovation experts Peter Denning and Robert Dunham reply with an emphatic yes. Innovation, they write, is not simply an invention, a policy, or a process to be managed. Innovation is a personal skill that can be learned, developed through practice, and extended into organizations. Denning and Dunham define innovation as the art of getting people to adopt change. They draw a distinction between invention and innovation: many inventions never become innovations, and many innovations do not involve an invention. They identify and describe eight personal practices that all successful innovators perform: sensing, envisioning, offering, adopting, sustaining, executing, leading, and embodying. Together, these practices can boost a fledgling innovator to success. Weakness in any of these practices, they show, blocks innovation. Denning and Dunham describe innovation at scales ranging from the private (a family organization of chores and allowances) to the planetary (the invention and adoption of the World Wide Web). They provide a detailed account of the eight practices and how to accomplish them; and they chart the path to innovation mastery, from individual practices to teams and social networks.'--Provided by publisher

Beyond calculation : the next fifty years of computing by Peter J Denning( Book )

In March 1997, the Association for Computing Machinery will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the electronic computer. To understand what an extraordinary fifty years the computer has had, you need only look around you--probably no farther than your desk. Computers are everywhere: in our cars, our homes, our supermarkets, at the phone company office, and at your local hospital. But as the contributors to this volume make clear, the scientific, social and economic impact of computers is only beginning to be felt. These sixteen invited essays on the future of computing take on a dazzling variety of topics, with opinions from such experts as Gordon Bell, Sherry Turkle, Edsger W. Dijkstra, Paul Abraham, Donald Norman, Franz Alt, and David Gelernter. This brilliantly eclectic collection, commissioned to celebrate a major milestone in an ongoing technological revolution, will fascinate anybody with an interest in computers and where they're taking us

Talking back to the machine : computers and human aspiration by Peter J Denning( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In early 1997, the Association for Computing Machinery celebrated its golden jubilee with a special conference and a book, Beyond Calculation: The Next Fifty Years of Computing." "The success of Beyond Calculation led the ACM to produce this sequel, Talking Back to the Machine. This book captures the visions of the nineteen speakers at the ACM conference, most of whom were not represented in Beyond Calculation. Renowned experts all, they ponder how computers will influence the ways we function as individuals and within society in coming decades. They describe the many different ways in which our lives may be altered by information technology and how we ourselves might shape things to come."--Jacket
