About this book

Introduction

Leveraged Innovation reveals that a dramatically different approach to the supplier-client relationship is being developed by leading companies around the world. It documents the benefits of Early Supplier Involvement (ESI), a radically new approach to inter-company relations which is providing a powerful impetus for increased creativity. Based on the findings of a European Research team, the text clearly shows how, why and to what effect suppliers the world over are becoming increasingly involved in the innovation process itself. Leveraged Innovation demonstrates and documents the process through which increased co-operation can lead to real competitive advantage. Leveraged Innovation is both an introduction to Early Supplier Involvement and a dynamic overview of best practise around the world. It provides important practical insights for enterprising companies, enabling the development and maintenance of ESI programmes of their own.
