Innovation Equity analyzes how innovations performed in the marketplace and how to evaluate their monetary value. The book identifies patterns in the way consumers adopt innovations and integrates these with marketing scholarship on how companies manage their customer base by attracting new customers, keeping current customers satisfied, and preventing customers from switching to competitors’ products.
The authors produce concrete models that powerfully predict how the marketplace will respond to innovations, providing a much more authoritative way to assess their potential monetary value and a framework for achieving that value.

“In taking a practical look at how managers can use diffusion of innovations modeling, the authors have themselves taken an innovative perspective by merging that work with lifetime customer value research. The result is a book that is both easy to read and rigorous with many examples and tips on how to implement their ideas. This book should be on every manager’s shelf.”
