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.
