The innovator's way : essential practices for successful innovation by Peter J Denning( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Innovation is the ruling buzzword in business today. Technology companies invest billions in developing new gadgets; business leaders see innovation as the key to a competitive edge; policymakers craft regulations to foster a climate of innovation. And yet businesses report a success rate of only four percent for innovation initiatives. Can we significantly increase our odds of succeeding at innovation? In The Innovator's Way, innovation experts Peter Denning and Robert Dunham reply with an emphatic yes. Innovation, they write, is not simply an invention, a policy, or a process to be managed. Innovation is a personal skill that can be learned, developed through practice, and extended into organizations. Denning and Dunham define innovation as the art of getting people to adopt change. They draw a distinction between invention and innovation: many inventions never become innovations, and many innovations do not involve an invention. They identify and describe eight personal practices that all successful innovators perform: sensing, envisioning, offering, adopting, sustaining, executing, leading, and embodying. Together, these practices can boost a fledgling innovator to success. Weakness in any of these practices, they show, blocks innovation. Denning and Dunham describe innovation at scales ranging from the private (a family organization of chores and allowances) to the planetary (the invention and adoption of the World Wide Web). They provide a detailed account of the eight practices and how to accomplish them; and they chart the path to innovation mastery, from individual practices to teams and social networks.'--Provided by publisher

Great principles of computing by Peter J Denning( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Computing is usually viewed as a technology field that advances at the breakneck speed of Moore's law. If we turn away even for a moment, we might miss a game-changing technological breakthrough or an earth-shaking theoretical development. This book takes a different perspective, presenting computing as a science governed by fundamental principles that span all technologies. Computer science is a science of information processes. We need a new language to describe the science, and in this book, Peter Denning and Craig Martell offer the great principles framework as just such a language. This is a book about the whole of computing - its algorithms, architectures, and designs. Denning and Martell divide the great principles of computing into six categories: communication, computation, coordination, recollection, evaluation, and design. They begin with an introduction to computing, its history, its many interactions with other fields, its domains of practice, and the structure of the great principles framework. They go on to examine the great principles in different areas: information, machines, programming, computation, memory, parallelism, queueing, and design. Finally, they apply the great principles to networking, the Internet in particular. "--Back cover
Talking back to the machine : computers and human aspiration by Peter J Denning( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In early 1997, the Association for Computing Machinery celebrated its golden jubilee with a special conference and a book, Beyond Calculation: The Next Fifty Years of Computing." "The success of Beyond Calculation led the ACM to produce this sequel, Talking Back to the Machine. This book captures the visions of the nineteen speakers at the ACM conference, most of whom were not represented in Beyond Calculation. Renowned experts all, they ponder how computers will influence the ways we function as individuals and within society in coming decades. They describe the many different ways in which our lives may be altered by information technology and how we ourselves might shape things to come."--Jacket
