Corporate venturing




Corina Kuiper

Most companies wake up to the necessity of creating new business through corporate venturing. On the same hand many companies struggle how to create new business areas next to or even outside their current business scope. When should a company decide to explore corporate venturing? Should a company spend money on this and if yes: how much money, or better, how little? In this book the intriguing process of corporate venturing is described in terms of family relations. In corporate venturing setting-up new businesses always takes place within or in close cooperation with a large corporate organization. So we are talking about babies and children that need to be conceived, born and raised in the precarious environment of large (mother) companies. Some of these children will be part of the corporate family, other children will grow-up outside and have only a financial and/or business relationship with the corporates. Some will leave the family (spin-outs) and others will be adopted (acquisitions). What is the wisest thing to do, knowing that large companies generally have the least problems with the conception and the early stages of life as the baby is safe in their incubator and don't need substantial investments, in contrast with raising teenagers involving huge problems and challenges to overcome? Fred van Ommen en Corina Kuiper are both fascinated by the field of corporate venturing. They wrote this book for the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Corporate Venturing Network Netherlands (CVNN). By sharing the experiences of professionals in the field of corporate venturing, they hope they will inspire the creation of new family members in corporate organizations. Diverse experts spraken zich al uit over het boek: Rob van Leen, Chief Innovation Officer DSM: 'Verplichte kost voor iedereen die in de weer is met corporate venturing' Frits van Hout, CMO ASML: 'Instructieve bijdrage aan het debat' Henry Chesbrough, Faculty Director Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley: 'Great book on corporate venturing and its inextricable connection with corporate innovation'

Imagineering the butterfly effect

Imagineering the butterfly effect




Diane Nijs

`Making change happen is an important challenge strategists face today. Not only do many of our organizations need change, whole industries and systems need to transform in order to survive and thrive in a connected society. In this study the complexity-based design approach of imagineering is presented and evaluated for its effectiveness in realizing organizational innovation in a sustainable way. The method approaches organizational change as an emerging process of self-organization. By redesigning the business concept in the narrative mode a kind of bottom-up revitalizing process is effectuated which ignites the collective creativity of involved stakeholders in a strategically envisioned direction. Instead of focusing on changing behavior as conventional change-methods do, the method focuses on achieving a mind-shift in order to effectuate `transformation by inspiration. The effectiveness of the method is evaluated predominantly through two cases which span a period of approximately ten years: the case of the city of Antwerp, and the case of the oldest Belgian retail-chain, Veritas. Based on insights gained from this study, the author reflects on the implications of the imagineering design method on four fields of study: transformative organizing, strategic thinking, design thinking in management and management education.

Network your way to success

Network your way to success




Charles D.A. Ruffolo

Who would have ever guessed that a small-town, ruffian from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania would be earning a good living as a self-proclaimed Professional Networker based in the Netherlands, with a following of thousands? Today, I have not one but three organizations devoted to networking and giving back: RIBS (Ruffolos International Business Services) Network, begun in 1995, wherein I give speeches and conduct custom-tailored network training sessions for individuals and groups; my Network-Club.com, which currently has over 3000 members, providing valuable contacts, networking venues and news; and my non-profit charity, the Giving Back Foundation, whereby mentors help minority high-school students in the Netherlands to explore career options. In 2000, I held my first Network-Club.com event in Amsterdam with 110 people in attendance. Today those events, which take place eight times a year throughout the Netherlands, attract three times that amount. We expand with franchises to the rest of Europe and the United States. My secret?

The Balancing act of Innovation (E-boek)

The Balancing act of Innovation (E-boek)




Philippe Silberzahn

Een absolute aanrader voor moderne bedrijven die vooruit willen!;;;Innoveren kan op duizend en één manieren. De kunst is om op zoek te gaan naar uw eigen stijl en uw eigen 'road to innovation' die de balans houdt tussen creativiteit en discipline;;;De verschillende niveaus van innovatie op een rijtje: het team en de mensen, projecten, business units, ondernemingen en ecosystemen;;;Het geheel is een overzicht van een reeks inspirerende innovatiestrategieën, maar de hoofdstukken kunnen ook perfect apart gelezen worden Innovations are everywhere - and they matter. They matter because they change our lives, for better or worse, and because they are the source of long-term growth. But is innovation always the best policy? Is 'now' necessarily the best time to innovate? And how exactly should we go about it? This book seeks to provide the answers to some of these questions. It is not a detailed manual for innovation, since experience suggests that there is no such thing as a simple set of successful innovation recipes, which work at all times and in all places. For this reason, the book - written for practising managers and students of company-level innovation- uses a case-based methodology from which readers can learn practical lessons. At the same time it provides examples of creative approaches followed by less publicly well-known, high-impact SME innovators, or by leading well-established firms applying less known, high-impact innovation strategies. It shows how innovators as diverse as Bongo, GreenPan, Studio 100, Cronos, Belgacom Mobile, Arteconomy, QOD, Sigasi, VIB, Janssen Pharmaceutica, and Alcatel-Lucent - companies which range from big to small, high-tech to low-tech, new to old, product-based to service-based, well known to less well known - have succeeded in completing their innovation journey. The cases discuss topics as varied as creativity, growth, product leadership, business model change, as well as finance and commercialisation. There are many possible roads to innovation. Successful innovation means defining your own road. The purpose of this book is to help you plan your journey along your own particular route. www.thebalancingactofinnovation.com

The essence of scenarios




Angela Wilkinson

In 1965, Royal Dutch Shell started experimenting with a new approach to preparing for the future. This approach, called scenario planning, eschewed forecasting in favor of plausible alternative stories. By using stories, or scenarios, Shell aimed to avoid the false assumption that the future would look much like the presentan assumption that marred most corporate planning at the time. The Essence of Scenarios offers unmatched insight into the companys innovative practice, which still has a huge influence on the way businesses, governments, and other organizations think about and plan for the future. In the course of their research, Angela Wilkinson and Roland Kupers interviewed almost every living veteran of the Shell scenario planning operation, along with many top Shell executives from later periods. Drawing on these interviews, the authors identify several principles that characterize the Shell process and explain how it has survived and thrived for so long. They also enumerate the qualities of successful Shell scenarios, which above all must be plausible stories with logical trajectories. Ultimately, Wilkinson and Kupers demonstrate the value of scenario planning as a sustained practice, rather than as a one-off exercise.

Turbulence

Turbulence



The ever tighter coupling of our food, water and energy systems, in the context of a changing climate is leading to increasing turbulence in the world. As a consequence, it becomes ever more crucial to develop cities, regions, and economies with resilience in mind. Because of their global reach, substantial resources, and information-driven leadership structures, multinational corporations can play a major, constructive role in improving our understanding and design of resilient systems. This volume is the product of the Resilience Action Initiative, a collaboration among Dow, DuPont, IBM, McKinsey, Shell, Siemens, Swiss Re, Unilever, and Yara designed to explore possible corporate contributions to global resilience, especially at the nexus of water, food and energy. Aggressively forward-thinking, and consistent with an enlightened self-interest, the ideas considered here represent a corporate perspective on the broad collaborations required for a more resilient world. -Roland Kupers is an associate fellow in the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford.

Your wake-up call

Your wake-up call




Charles D.A. Ruffolo

Your Wake-Up Call is your personal guide toward inspiration, motivation and enthusiasm. It's an inside look into the mind of an individual who is not only educated, but also a street-smart businessman that has had to deal with various situations concerning family, friends and business. "Your Wake-Up Call" is a combination of characteristics Charles Ruffolo believes a person must possess, in order to give them the ability to be inspired, motivated and enthused in everyday life. ABOUT CHARLES D.A. RUFFOLO MPA, THE NETWORKING After a twenty year career in het U.S. military, Charles D.A. Ruffolo settled down in the Netherlands and enriched our business environment with his talents as a professional networker. These items created the capital for The NetworKing B.V. in 1999, a professional network organization that brings businesses closer together and helps nurture profitable and meaningful business relationships. Ruffolo is an international speaker, trainer, moderator, bestseller author and publisher who has spoken in ten countries, presents over 150 times each year. He is an active member of various business clubs and serves on numerous business clubs and boards (Member American Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands, former President of the Amsterdam American Business Club, Advisory Board/Partner Big Improvement Day and Founder of the Giving Back Foundation). Ruffolo has used the power of Internet technology to demonstrate that NetworKing is truly a business of daily necessity by starting The Network Club which has thousands of members around the global. Charles has arranged former President of the United States of America, Clinton and Richard Branson to visit the Netherlands several times. He also successfully arranged and coordinated for the Government of Aruba former USA Vice President Al Gore to headline their `Green Aruba event. In 2010, Charles entered into partnership with Anne Marie Westra from EPLÚ Management Support. They jointly organize Networking training, workshops, presentations and lectures for companies, groups and organizations throughout the Netherlands and beyond. Based on the foundations of The NetworKing concept, in 2010 Charles started The NetworKing Academy. Together with Anne Marie Westra, who is the Co-Founder, he has found in ACE Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship/University of Amsterdam the ideal platform and meeting centre for companies and networks. The NetworKing Academy enlightens corporate and entrepreneurial network related topics with up-to-date business situations, where its graduates will become skilled professional networkers. In 2011 Ruffolo was closely involved setting up 24Kitchen, the first Dutch food lifestyle platform that creates a community where food is of paramount importance. In 2012 24Kitchen was voted Netherlands best TV channel. Ruffolos philosophy about Networking is that its a `give and take process with people with whom you have a direct or indirect relationship. Networking enables you to go directly from A to Z and skip the usual path through B to Y. Charless has written a book on Networking, Network Your Way to Success, also published in Dutch and Chinese, and he has created the NetworKing card game called the `Ruffle Shuffle. In 2014 he has published his most recent book, Your Wake-Up Call, which is available in English and Dutch. Who you know is not as important as who knows YOU! The NetworKing B.V.

The philosopher's toolbox for entrepreneurs




Michael F. Bruyn

'A businessman who reads Business Week is lost to fame. One who reads Proust is marked for greatness.' John Kenneth Galbraith In many economies, freelancers and other independent entrepreneurs make up for well over ten per cent of the total workforce. And their number is rising. They all have to deal with significant risk and uncertain outcomes. Along the way they continuously face difficult questions. How do I bring my product to the market? Is this job applicant any good? Does partnering make sense for me at all? Should I accept that loan? How should I approach these negotiations? What about networking? All the time, entrepreneurs are left to take decisions on their own. Support is hard to come by, costly and not always of the highest added value. 'The Philosopher’s Toolbox for Entrepreneurs' is a unique handbook. It helps every entrepreneur, great and small, to find thoughtful and unprejudiced answers to the questions which he or she faces every day. The book is brimming with ideas from intelligent, independent thinkers ranging from Socrates to Sean Connery. It deals with over thirty clear-cut themes which are essential to any entrepreneur in an easily accessible, no-nonsense manner. Hundreds of wise, inspiring sayings are linked to practical here-and-now business experience. 'The Philosopher’s Toolbox for Entrepreneurs' is a loyal standby for the independent businessman or woman, acting as a personal coach, an involved non-executive and impartial counsellor. It is an indispensable tool for daily use and should be kept handy at all times, close to the smartphone and notebook, ready to provide some quick and effective sparring at a moment’s notice. Michael Bruyn (1962) is an independent entrepreneur and management consultant, who obtained his mba at imd Lausanne. He has an international track record in business of over thirty years, accumulated under all possible weather conditions. He has consulted a wide range of clients, from start-ups to institutional investors and listed companies.
