IN THIS SUMMARY

As Tony Davila and Marc J. Epstein explain in The Innovation Paradox, the complexity of today’s business world and society at large means that innovative solutions are increasingly complex. The combination of the growth of the Internet and the emergence of the venture capital model has given the competitive advantage to fast-moving startups. The benefits of pursuing operational excellence and incremental innovation can present liabilities for breakthrough innovation. The same organizational design that is good for improving organizational excellence and developing incremental innovation can impede breakthrough innovations that many leaders seek. This is what is known as the innovation paradox.
