Authors Prahalad and Krishnan offer two formulas that add up to business innovation.
The two guiding principles of The New Age Of Innovation (McGraw-Hill, 2008)--the new book by University of Michigan Ross School of Business professors C.K. Prahalad and M.S. Krishnan, being published this month in the United States--are N = 1 and R = G. These formulas illustrate important trends shaping today's business environment. N = 1 represents the ability, provided by the Internet, to interact with customers on an individual basis--not simply to communicate but to co-create value with them. R = G represents access, provided by global supply chains, to resources and talent anywhere in the world--access that means companies can leverage both emerging and established markets to create unique products and services based on that individual interaction with customers.
