One of the business world’s most highly regarded
innovators offers her ideas on how to close the innovation
Is innovation magic, luck, or just another
process to be managed? Are innovators born or taught?
Written by one of the technology industry’s most respected
entrepreneurs and innovators, Closing the Innovation
Gap answers those and other important questions for
business leaders, entrepreneurs, public policy makers,
academics, and anyone interested in America’s future.
Entrepreneur and former Cisco CTO Judy Estrin explores
the evolution of science and technology after World War II
to illustrate why innovation is so crucial to economic,
social, and cultural development. Without a thriving
“innovation ecosystem,” says Estrin, the United States will
not be able to leverage rapidly-changing conditions and
prevail in the emerging global economy. She outlines the
distinctive life-cycles of each area of this ecosystem--
research, development, and application--and goes on to
describe the forces that are eroding it, explaining clearly
how and why companies and countries lose their innovative
edge. Then she offers practical advice and guidance on what
business leaders, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and
educators can do to reignite the spark of scientific and
technological creativity in organizations and the country.
