  18. 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.

  19. Innovation Strategies and Performance in Small Firms

    Innovation Strategies and Performance in Small Firms

    John R. Baldwin, Guy Gellatly
    John Baldwin and Guy Gellatly find that the strategic decisions young firms make play a critical role in determining their odds for survival and growth. New small firms survive by developing a core set of business skills – skills related inter alia to management, human resources, marketing and financing. Advanced innovation capabilities related to R&D and technology set high-performance firms apart from other businesses. Industry-level differences in product lifecycle, production activity, competitive intensity and the science base all influence the nature of small-firm innovation. Learn More
