  1. 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

  2. Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation

    Edited by John Cantwell, José Molero
    Multinational Enterprises, Innovative Strategies and Systems of Innovation explores the extent to which multinational enterprises (MNEs) are decentralising the creation of new technological capabilities to various different countries. 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

  3. Internationalization, Technology and Services

    Internationalization, Technology and Services

    Edited by Marcela Miozzo, Ian Miles
    This book examines the way in which the increasing internationalization of services, including the operation of multinationals in this sector, interacts with the process of innovation in services. The book challenges the theoretical traditions that have developed around the analysis of service innovation and internationalization, and argues for a new research agenda. The distinguished contributors address many of the most pertinent issues and adopt a variety of theoretical and empirical approaches to enrich the debates. Learn More

  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. Managing Know-Who Based Companies

    Managing Know-Who Based Companies

    Sigvald J. Harryson
    Dr Harryson develops the principle of ‘know-who’ – first propounded and practised by Japanese companies but now increasingly championed by multinationals. Case studies are used from companies such as Kodak, Ericsson, IBM and Philips to highlight the networking patterns deployed by these companies and to ultimately confirm or deny the relevance of ‘know-who’ management. The book explains why, in a world where knowledge and intellectual value is widely acknowledged as crucial, companies can achieve both innovativeness and productivity through ‘know-who’. Learn More
