The subject of innovation management is often treated as a series of separate specialisms, rather than an integrated task. This book brings together innovation management and new product development, the role of intellectual property and the management of research and development. Particular emphasis is placed on the need to view innovation as a management process. A conceptual framework is introduced which emphasises the importance of internal processes and external linkages. It also examines how the heritage and knowledge base of an organisation drive the development of business opportunities. It is these opportunities which are at the heart of new product ideas. The wide subject of technology management is also tackled and in particular, how companies manage research and development (R&D).
