Innovation has been viewed as a coupling process which is initiated by the minds of imaginative people. However, critiques have argued the usefulness of the user involvement in the process of product development (Woolgar, 1991). One of a common techniques that is deployed by manufacturing firm for outsourcing their product development is crowdsourcing (Kleemann et al., 2008), which can lead to the way organizations use the innovation of the users. Conflict of intellectual property right for new developed product is largely identified as an issue both for the manufacturing firms and users. Additionally, increased costs and lack of trust puts the quality of end product at risk, which is a by-product of crowdsourcing (Hautz et al., 2010).
Baumol (2002) also argues that “innovation breeds innovation” (p. 284), pointing to the path dependency characteristic of innovation. Innovating firms are incentivised to pursue novel products and processes provided they are able to reap first-mover benefits (Porter and van der Linde, 1995b). However, the ability of the innovator to capture the returns of his innovation is often problematic. Jaffe et al. (2002) assert that“… the creator of an asset will typically fail to appropriate all or perhaps most of the social returns it generates”.
This assumption also limits its application to the real world greatly. Empirically we know that market failures and externalities to exist in almost, if not all, markets throughout the world. With this in mind EGT looked to explain these assumptions in its theory. Externalities are an important aspect of EGT and how technology advances economic growth. In the theory one form is the positive spillover, or externality, between firms and industry that are located near one another.
Though the technology is launched in the market there will be competition with the old technology as people can see it as only incremental changes in the product but later it may or may not be a radical change. If the new innovation will bring the radical change then a dominant design will emerge & attention will be shifted to the product improvement & incremental innovation. 3) Analyse Innovation & Profits in Terms of Assets, Competencies & Knowledge: Firm needs assets or resources & the ability to use them to attain profit which is known as competence. Assets & competence together form the firm’s capabilities. The source of these capabilities determines the profits that the firm can expect to make.
Even companies that choose not to adopt such packages are pursuing aggressive strategies of systems integration by redeveloping custom software and adopting technologies such as data warehousing. Integrated enterprise systems deserve serious research attention because of their great potential for financial, technical, managerial, human, and strategic benefits, costs, and risks. This assignment will provide a theoretical framework for analyzing, both retrospectively and prospectively, the business value of enterprise systems. We first describe the historical context in which enterprise systems emerged. Next we identify the key characteristics of enterprise systems, discuss the reasons companies do and do not adopt them, and summarize arguments about why enterprise systems are an important topic for research.

Managing barrier activities consist of an audit of rules and practices which exposes barriers that hinder the business from succeeding, rather than restructuring the organization performance systems (Rieger, 2011). Although removing barriers is a daunting task, once the barriers have been conquered it is a true sign of success (Rieger, 2011). Organizations in every industry face operational barriers at some level in order to obtain success.
On the other hand, disruptive technology opens a totally new market by its new elements. Usually, disruptive technology has to “sacrifice performance along dimensions that are important to current customers”. Following Bower and Christensen, there is a new innovation introduced the market whose att... ... middle of paper ... ...ureaucracy. The key is to manage strategically important disruptive technologies in an organizational context.” With any organizations, specially, with a good managed, it is able to successfully developing and introducing disruptive technologies, it is very important for them to follow those steps mentioned above. It is very important to recognize the potential profits.
A lot of scientific studies have been carried by researchers to understand innovation process and how can Innovation Impact Enterprises? They gone through importance of innovation for businesses and investigated the implementation of innovation in different models and measurement of performance. With the new challenges of globalization and open markets, competition toughens considerably and need for change is becoming more crucial. A recently published study that could be found here (http://www.ibimapublishing.com/journals/JIBBP/2012/245013/245013.html) carried by researchers from a Faculty of Management and Economics in Czech Republic has investigated this defy and noticed how Czech business companies "assign big importance to both inner and outer innovation." The effective innovation process is something done strategically based on creative thinking and innovation strategy.
While QLC.io and Digify engaged in product innovation, HVV pivoted on an innovative business model. Business model innovation often trumps technological innovation. Since the World Wide Web was already familiar amongst consumers, having an innovative business model instead was clearly a more strategic move. Thus, it seemed apparent that innovation brings about new ideas and offerings that could potentially help establish a name in the market. The overlapping responses highlight the need for businesses to trace the voices of their customers and to detach any emotional attachment to any products as course corrections on top of continual innovation are often required to ensure the best fit in the market.
CONCLUSION In the nutshell, changes in business environment are unforeseeable. It is common that sometimes company’s activity shall change to continues sustainable in the open market.

Internal forces of changes are involving employer, employees and technology.
