Critical Acclaim
‘This is a timely and informative book! It is rich in content, grounded in excellent research and theory, and comprehensive in coverage. Damanpour has done a magnificent job in organizing a vast body of research, making it more easily accessible to researchers, students, and managers.’
– Shaker A. Zahra, University of Minnesota, US

‘Damanpour does a superb job of synthesizing the highly fragmented, complex, and interdisciplinary research on the management of innovation. The result: an essential resource for scholars focused on conducting evidence-based research or developing theory in innovation that enhances both the understanding of and the performance of organizations in the private, public, and non-profit sectors of the economy.’
– Gregory G. Dess, University of Texas at Dallas, US

‘For many years Fariborz Damanpour has been a unique voice in the literature on innovation and organization. He offers a synthetic representation of innovation, far removed from fashionable ideas. In this unique book, Fariborz clarifies what innovation means, what concepts it relies on, and how scholars theorize about it. The book sets a standard in the literature on innovation for years to come.’
– Benoît Godin, Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), Canada
