[PODCAST] The Enterprise of Rekindling Innovation

“Just because small is beautiful doesn’t mean big has to be ugly,” says Gary Pisano, as he explains the main theme of his latest book, Creative Construction: The DNA of Sustained Innovation. At its core, this book overturns the idea that innovation can only really be achieved by small entrepreneurial companies. Pisano argues that instead of seeing the size of an enterprise as an impediment to innovation, large enterprises simply need to use their size to their advantage when forging and implementing innovative changes. The key, says Pisano, is in having a clear and concise definition of what innovation means to a specific company, and formulating specific plans for achieving different types of innovation.
