The Success Equation: Untangling Skill and Luck in Business, Sports, and Investing
by Michael J. Mauboussin
“Much of what we experience in life results from a combination of skill and luck,” writes Michael Mauboussin. The trick, of course, is figuring out just how many of our successes (and failures) can be attributed to each, and how we can learn to tell the difference ahead of time. But imagine what we could accomplish if we were able to tease out these two threads, examine them, and use the resulting knowledge to make better decisions. In Success Equation, Michael Mauboussin helps to untangle these intricate strands to offer the structure needed to analyze the relative importance of skill and luck.

Managing Global Innovation: Frameworks for Integrating Capabilities around the World
by Yves L. Doz and Keeley Wilson
In today’s global economy, it would be short-sighted to rely solely on local resources for new-product innovations. Instead, knowledge and activity critical to innovation most likely lie outside your company’s home territories — sometimes far outside. And this distance makes it harder than ever to obtain and integrate these resources, eating away at your competitive edge. How to tackle this challenge? In Managing Global Innovation, INSEAD’s Yves L. Doz and Keeley Wilson show you how to build and leverage a global innovation network.
Building a Growth Factory
by Scott Anthony and David Duncan
Even the best-performing companies eventually stall. Sustaining momentum — and remaining a great growth company — takes a system. Scott Anthony and David Duncan call this system a Growth Factory, and in this HBR single they highlight the four main components that make innovation repeatable and reliable with real examples from inside P&G, Citi, and even their own firm, Innosight.
