Edward Elgar Pub., Jan 1, 1998 - Technology & Engineering - 248 pages
'This book has very nicely highlighted how the internal organization of a firm and its external influence are intrinsic to the innovative potential of the firms. the book, because of certain new insights on this important issue of innovative capabilities would be very useful to policy makers, industry, and researchers in the area of innovation and technological change.' - N. Mrinalini, Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research This book investigates the effects of organizational contexts on the process of technological innovation. It analyses the internal organization of the firm as well as external influences, and examines how these factors affect a firm's innovative potential. the organization of the firm, it is argued, is intrinsic to the innovation process itself.
