Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The first book to present innovation and entrepreneurship as purposeful and systematic discipline which explains and analyzes the challenges and opportunities of America's new entrepreneurial economy. A superbly practical book that explains what established businesses, public survey institutions, and new yentures have to know, have to learn, and have to do in today's economy and marketplace.


Drucker "describes seven different ways in which opportunities for innovation arise--from new technology to changing demographies and unexpected or odd events--and then suggests how to innovate inside existing businesses, new companies and organisations like universities and charities."
The Economist

Drucker's management books and analyses of economics and society are widely read and respected throughout the world and have been translated into more than 20 languages.
