‘Peter Drucker said “Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation.” Imagine a collection of the latest thinking on the intersection of those two functions, leading to effective new product development. Golder and Mitra have produced such a collection, with contributions by just the right authors on just the right topics. Researchers should consult this Handbook when choosing research topics. Educators should consult this Handbook for material to share with their students. And managers should consult this Handbook so they can apply the latest thinking to their innovation efforts. An instant classic!’
– Gary L. Lilien, Penn State University, US
