This is the definitive collection on the subject of innovation and innovation management. It brings together in two volumes the essential analyses in the field from its leading authorities. Critical issues addressed include major theoretical overviews and syntheses of the field; analyses of different national systems of innovation, patterns of diffusion and historical trajectories; the links between business strategy, entrepreneurship and innovation; analyses of technology strategies, new product development and innovation; the barriers and enablers of innovation; the ways in which innovation can be promoted through organizational and human resource interventions; the role of managers in promoting (or hindering) innovation; the links between knowledge, learning and change; and the role of alliances and networks in enabling innovation. These volumes provide an invaluable resource for scholars and students worldwide who have an interest in the subject of innovation.
‘This collection of articles will provide readers with a broad-based review of current thinking on the role innovation plays within the corporate world. Any of the sections can be used as a stand-alone resource. The authors are well respected and the journals that were consulted are mostly peer-reviewed and authoritative. This book would be a good addition to university economic and business library collections.’
– Judith Field, Business Information Alert

‘The Management of Innovation would be especially valuable for two kinds of researchers. Curious scholars who are unfamiliar with innovation research – graduate students in business or economic history come to mind - could use this book as an excellent introduction. Scholars who understand, say, the historical literature on innovation would find the book useful for exploring other domains, such as management science. Second, The Management of Innovation will be useful in teaching courses on business, technology, innovation, or organizations. . . It testifies to John Storey’s discernment and to the contributors’ scholarship that Management of Innovation includes so many fine works.’
– Christopher Tassava, Enterprise and Society

‘John Storey’s The Management of Innovation is a superb collection of the best of a wide variety of articles relevant to innovation in organisations. The articles, written by the leading authors in their fields, examine the management of innovation from virtually every angle and from the very macro to the very micro. It is a collection for the academic and practitioner deeply interested in having a vast body of knowledge about managing innovation gathered in two, well-organised volumes.’
– Randall Schuler, Rutgers University, US
