Winning Through Innovation reveals why short-term corporate success often increases the chances of long-term failure. To avoid this success syndrome, managers must learn to sustain incremental change while simultaneously leading revolutionary change. Great managers, say Tushman and O’Reilly, are architects, network builders, and jugglers. They understand how to employ these roles to foster a culture that celebrates stability and change in order to ensure success tomorrow.

Unlike other books on innovation, this is the first to provide systematic, integrated tools and tangible steps that you can begin using today to gain rich practical insights or managing innovation streams and evolutionary and revolutionary change in your own organization.
