  9. Successful Innovation

    Successful Innovation

    Jan Cobbenhagen
    Innovation as an activity is not new – what has changed is the pace at which firms have to innovate. This book analyses innovation success at the company, rather than the project, level and contributes to the development of a new theory on innovation management in small and medium-sized enterprises. The author uses studies from 63 companies from 35 different industry and service sectors in order to obtain non-sector specific findings. He concludes that innovative success is based on a combination of technological, marketing and organizational competencies and that successfully innovating companies can be said to have a strong internal locus of control.

  10. Firm Size, Innovation and Market Structure

    Firm Size, Innovation and Market Structure

    Mariana Muzzucato
    Firm Size, Innovation and Market Structure uses evolutionary dynamic theory, non-linear mathematics and computer simulation techniques to explore the relationship between firm size, innovation and market structure. The book begins by reviewing the connection between these variables from a theoretical and an empirical point of view, and goes on to illustrate how analytical tools may be used in order to explore Schumpeterian propositions regarding firm size, innovation and the specific role of idiosyncratic events.

  12. Industrial Diversification and Innovation

    Industrial Diversification and Innovation

    François Texier
    This innovative and clearly written book examines the process of diversification as a strategy to promote innovation and growth within firms and to foster structural change in industry. Through a comparative case study of the aerospace industry, using cases of diversification at Dassault (France), Saab (Sweden) and Daewoo (South Korea), the author examines interactions between the firm and the state, and critically evaluates the role of national and sectoral institutions during the diversification process. He then uses these findings to propose a new, original model for diversification. Learn More

    Knowledge Spillovers and Economic Growth

    Marjolein C.J. Caniëls
