I am early on in a MBA programme and would like to begin focussing my reading on issues around electronic and computer engineering; specifically innovation in product development and R&D.
I hope this request reaches individuals who have implemented or been involved in programmes of change that have measurably benefited innovation, or anyone who has researched this area. I am interested in all aspects of innovation - definition, organisational structure, management/leadership, culture, processes, learning (individual & organisational) etc.
Could you recommend any theoretical or research based reading?
Are there any real life examples of changes to address innovation? These do not necessarily have to have been successful!

Many thanks
Steve Pritchard

I have many years experience in product development and innovative technologies (and a few grey hairs to show for it!). One of the best exponents I have met concerning product development has been Don Reinertsen http://www.reinertsen.co.uk/ I learned a great deal from his lectures and publications which I have used extensively. He has developed a whole range of helpful guidelines and practical tools which are based on real life Project work and their successful execution.

Don Reinertsen does look very interesting and relevant place to start.
I'll take a look at his two books; he seems to have provided well for those wanting to read around the subject as well with suggested readings.
Thank you very much!
