Editorial Review:
'Professors Honig, Lampel and Drori have put together a collection of thought-provoking chapters on ingenuity written by an exciting group of scholars from around the world. The authors critically explore the difficult yet rewarding concept of ingenuity, and then apply this concept to the study of processes such as improvisation, bricolage and jugaad in a range of domains and settings such as sustainability, haute cuisine, dance and microfinance. I would recommend this book to academicians and practitioners alike interested in creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.'
- Raghu Garud, Pennsylvania State University, US

The editors of this Handbook, Benson Honig, Joseph Lampel and Israel Drori, define organizational ingenuity as 'the ability to create innovative solutions within structural constraints using limited resources and imaginative problem solving'. They examine the dichotomy between organizational freedom and necessity in order to better understand the role of ingenuity in the success of an organization.

Organizational ingenuity is essential for effective action in a world where resources are increasingly scarce and regulations are ever more demanding. The authors examine existing models of this phenomenon and offer case studies and theoretical perspectives that illuminate the processes that shape high-quality outcomes. The Handbook concludes with a theoretical summary and a discussion of future research opportunities.

This coherent collection, with rich and varied contributions from leading entrepreneurial thinkers, will appeal to students and scholars of business and entrepreneurship as well as to practitioners interested in creativity and innovation.
