The Cultural Side of Innovation

In most discussions about the knowledge-based economy, innovation is associated or even equated with technology, while culturea€™s influence is ignored. Innovation is however embedded in cultural and social contexts, and neglecting these crucial contexts may impede an innovationa€™s diffusiona€”and eventual success. This book places culture at the center of discussions on innovation, beginning with a comprehensive introduction to innovationa€™s various forms, including the history, sociology, and economics of innovation. Insights from marketing and psychology are integrated into a complexity theory framework, which are then utilized to evaluate case studies of organizations experiencing repeated innovation successes. The sometimes fraught relationship of firms to creativity is discussed, and a new model for to calculating the creativity of an economy is presented.knowsAlproperty ofinnovation 124 Nokia 83, 117 Nonaka, Ikujiro 191 nonmarket activities 189 Nooteboom, Bart 186 North ... 151 Optima Cycles7 organization ecology 70 Oslo Manual 41 outsourcing 12Ay13, 78, 147 paradigm 47, 80Ay1, 93, 112, anbsp;...
