Logically, Breuer and Lüdeke-Freund do not just announce their point but carefully develop it through engagement with theory that they read against impactful business cases. Therefore, Values-Based Innovation Management is not just a handbook or purely theoretical work but a smart and well informed business book. Their material draws as well on insights on value and values from various strains of philosophy, sociology and management studies but also on cases where organizations were dedicated to real societal, ecological or cultural values. Besides informing their empirical work, these case studies can also be used in practical ways, e.g. to advance one’s own ideas and cases of values-based innovation, teaching a class of management students or doing business consulting.
The book is well written and provided me with highly inspiring reading experience. The authors took great care in making their arguments accessible for all kinds of readers. Innovation managers and entrepreneurs will profit from models and methods that are key to entrepreneurial success. Students and lecturers can dwell into the philosophical arguments, while time sensitive readers will appreciate the book being very well structured with graphical illustrations, reading guidelines, and iconographies that illustrate the important cornerstones. There is of course one question that this book cannot answer: What values should we and our businesses have and follow. These, as the book shows, can be liberal and progressive values that are oriented towards public, ecological wealth and so forth. However we also know that there can be much more utilitarian, hegemonic and even hazardous values operating within and out of businesses. Breuer and Lüdeke-Freund tends towards the first understanding of values taking a normative stand towards a more equitable world. Therefore I am looking forward to more cases and stories from this refreshing new view on innovation.
