There is increasing evidence of the importance of radical or breakthrough innovation to long-term firm success in the competitive marketplace today.

This article is based on a six-year longitudinal study of 12 radical-innovation projects in 10 large, mature companies.

Seven key strategic imperatives are offered for successfully implementing radical innovation.
