Chapter 8: Effectual Business Innovation Equals Building Mountains
by Fred Van Ommen and Corina Kuiper

Fred and Corina have gifted our readers with their pre-publication chapter in Orchestration of Effectuation. They take a decidely external view of innovation. In established markets the challenge is finding the shortest climbing route up the mountain. In creating new markets, the challenge is changing customer behavior. While at Philips they developed a 4x4 matrix framework for correlating maturity in a market life-cycle with the disruptiveness of innovation.
