Overview

Managing successfully in today's business environment is like learning how to change a tire while you are still driving the car. In Winning Through Innovation Tushman and O'Reilly show that it is possible to manage a business for today and create culture of innovation to ensure success tomorrow. The authors draw on lessons from their successful consulting practice as well as on the practical experiences of managers in top companies like Disney,3M,Compaq,and FedEx to demonstrate that short-term success actually increases the chances of long-term failure. They present a framework for overcoming this "success syndrome" and for developing action plans to meet these challenges. Using the authors' systematic tools and steps,managers will gain rich,practical insights and a lasting perspective for managing both evolutionary and revolutionary change in their own organizations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To avoid long-term failure while focusing on short-term success, business professors Tushman and O'Reilly present their views on the "ambidextrous organization." This is defined as having internally consistent structures and an internal operating culture that provides for excelling today while also planning for the future. This paradoxical state of dealing with incremental changes in the here and now while at the same time emphasizing the revolutionary change necessary in order to be in business tomorrow defines current business reality. Presenting examples from businesses that are doing a successful balancing act, the authors devise a model that can be used by any executive to understand better the dynamics of change necessary for long-term success. Their intriguing work, rooted in academic literature on the management of organizations, merits consideration, especially by larger university libraries.-Dale F. Farris, Groves, Tex.
