  1. Information Technology and Small Businesses

    Information Technology and Small Businesses

    Andrea Ordanini
    This book investigates the antecedents and consequences of information technology adoption among small and medium sized enterprises. Following the well publicized ‘Internet bubble’, the rate of adoption of such technologies – especially of Internet-based solutions – has slowly changed among small firms, leading to a very mixed picture. Whilst a significant number of these small firms are still excluded from such technologies, others show very complex patterns of adoption and implementation. Learn More

  2. The Silicon Dragon

    The Silicon Dragon

    Terence Tsai, Bor-Shiuan Cheng
    The Silicon Dragon is a systematic study of the growth of high-tech giants in the Greater China Region, depicting the success story of the microelectronics industry in Taiwan. The book examines the government policies that acted as catalysts to the growth of high-tech industries in Taiwan, along with the roles of high-tech ‘incubators’ and government-administered science parks. The authors provide case studies of high profile companies including Acer, Philips Semiconductors and Macronix International, and interviews with key decision makers to highlight the corporate strategies adopted in response to government policies and global commercial demand. Finally, insightful narratives on the birth and growth of a government-fostered strategic industry are provided, as is a synopsis of the Asian contribution to the evolution of the global microelectronics development.

  3. Entrepreneurial Strategy

    Entrepreneurial Strategy

    Lucio Cassia, Michael Fattore, Stefano Paleari
    Entrepreneurial Strategy aims to revive the debate on the role of entrepreneurship in the context of mature business. The authors contend that mature and declining industries are increasingly dominated by the negative pressure of external factors, but they are also embedded with a potential renewed role for entrepreneurship because the industry forces as a whole tend to break up, leaving space for strategic business innovation.

  4. Mergers and Acquisitions

    Mergers and Acquisitions

    Edited by Bruno Cassiman, Massimo G. Colombo

In so doing, the book integrates two bodies of literature, on M&As, and on innovation studies, a nexus which the editors contend represents an important step in the advancement of our understanding of both with clear implications for competitive advantage and growth of firms. Drawing on perspectives from both management and economics, the book offers a cohesive blend of theory, methodology, and a wealth of empirical material. Learn More

    Organizational Knowledge and Technology

    Rodrigo Magalhães

The author argues in favour of a more action-oriented – as opposed to planning dominated – approach to information systems management. Learn More

  17. Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Culture

    Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Culture

    Edited by Terrence E. Brown, Jan Ulijn
    Any technological advance, innovation or economic growth created by an organization is dependent on how that organization’s culture and environment fosters or inhibits these developments. This process is further complicated by the global nature of economic activity and differences in national cultures due to country-specific histories, experiences, traditions and rules. The distinguished authors in this important new book aim to study the nature of organizational innovation and change by examining the complex interplay between entrepreneurship, innovation and culture.

  20. Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Edited by John Cantwell, José Molero

The book contends that technological strategies and innovation activities undertaken by firms are a critical part of the increasing internationalisation of economic activity, and that MNEs are the main actors for these changes. It goes on to explain that MNEs must now effectively manage new technological assets in order to cope with extensive changes in the nature of international competition. Learn More
