R&D Decisions, Strategy, Policy and Innovations explores how research and development decisions affect all of us. They are linked inextricably to the performance of firms and of economics as a whole. Their importance means that they are of concern to a large number of practitioners, policy-makers and researchers. This book demonstrates the range of issues and perspectives which R&D can encompass and at the same time brings out the elements which unite them.
The papers in this book are organized into three main sections:
* Strategy and Organization explores the importance of R&D and of the structures and strategies of individual organizations. The emerging 'core competence paradigm' is especially noted.
* Policy and Performance looks at what new thinking on R&D more generally implies for government policy and the performance of industries, regions and economies.
* Disclosure and the Market examines issues raised by changing regulations on the disclosure of R&D expenditure.
