Corporate venturing : creating new businesses within the firm by Zenas Block( Book )
32 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 579 libraries worldwide
"Innovate" and "create" are mantras for today's companies that hope to gain a competitive edge and prosper in the coming years. But once firms take up the entrepreneurial challenge, how can they turn good ideas into viable ventures and ultimately, into successful new businesses? Now in this book, two experts on the art of venturing offer a masterly blueprint for designing, managing, and learning from corporate ventures - essential steps that will help companies lower the riskiness of venturing while raising the likelihood of success. Addressing senior line and staff management as well as potential venture managers, Corporate Venturing draws a veritable roadmap through the venturing process: fostering entrepreneurship; identifying and choosing opportunities; selecting, evaluating, and compensating venture managers; locating a venture within the firm; setting up special planning and control mechanisms; understanding the political interplay between the venture and the firm; and assessing and learning from venture experiences. Hundreds of practical insights emerge throughout the book, including how to anticipate and manage collisions between firm needs and venture needs; how to plan for changing management requirements as ventures grow; ways to get around control mechanisms that can kill a venture; methods for transferring know-how from firm to venture; how to keep a venture's intrusions from damaging the parent firm; when to use an executive champion; the benefits of failed ventures; ten survival principles for venture managers; and many more. When managed right, corporate venturing can be the key to new growth and revitalization for established companies, regardless of size. For practitioners, managers, and executives who want to take innovation out of the starting blocks and on to mature business success, there can be no better place to start than with Corporate Venturing

Explorations in information space : knowledge, agents, and organization by Max Boisot( Book )
18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
With the rise of the knowledge economy, the knowledge content of goods and services is going up just as their material content is declining. Economic value is increasingly seen to reside in the former - that is, in intangible assets - rather than in the latter. Yet we keep wanting to turn knowledge back into something tangible, something with definite boundaries which can be measured, manipulated, appropriated, and traded. In short, we want to reify knowledge. Scholars have been debating the nature of knowledge since the time of Plato. Many new insights have been gained from these debates, but little theoretical consensus has been achieved. Through six thematically linked chapters, the book articulates the theoretical approach to the production and distribution of knowledge that underpins Max Boisot's conceptual framework, the Information Space or I-Space. In this way the book looks to provide theoretical and practical underpinnings to Boisot's book Knowledge Assets (OUP, 1998). Following an introductory chapter, how knowledge relates to data and information is first examined in chapter 1, and how different economic actors - entrepreneurs, managers, etc - use knowledge as a basis for action is explored in chapter 2. Chapter 3 looks at how the heterogeneity of economic actors arises naturally from their respective data processing strategies in spite of any similarities in the data that they might share. Chapter 4 argues, contra much transaction-based economics, that an organizational order must have preceded a market order, something that should be reflected in any knowledge-based theory of the firm. Chapter 5 discusses the cultural and institutional significance of different kinds of knowledge flows. Finally, chapter 6 presents an agent-based simulation model, SimISpace, that illustrates how the I-Space might be applied to concrete problems such those of intellectual property rights. A concluding chapter proposes a research agenda based on the theorizing
Unlocking opportunities for growth : how to profit from uncertainty while limiting your risk by Alexander B. van Putten( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
"Most companies analyze investments using tools that bias them against real innovation and lead them to avoid their best opportunities. This book introduces a breakthrough alternative: Opportunity Engineering." "Drawing upon recent advances in financial analysis, but without requiring a lot of math, the authors show how to engineer the risk out of uncertain opportunities so you can pursue more high-payoff innovations. You'll learn how to escape from the "go/no-go vise" and implement more flexible decision-making that considers all the business alternatives, models, and opportunities associated with each project."--Jacket
