Innovation Tournaments: Creating and Selecting Exceptional Opportunities

Innovation Tournaments: Creating and Selecting Exceptional Opportunities

By Christian Terwiesch and Karl Ulrich
Harvard Business Press; 256 pages; $35

The authors show their dry, academic roots at times in this serious, thoughtful read.
