Innovation Management in a knowledge-Driven Economy
Year of Publication:
Universidad PolitÃ©cnica de Madrid
The aim of this study was to provide a comprehensive review of the scope, trends and major actors in the development and use of methods to manage innovation in the knowledge-driven economy. The study concentrated on Innovation Management Techniques (IMTs) that aim to improve competitiveness, and specifically on those IMTs that focus on knowledge as an important part of the innovation process.
The information provided in this study is based both on an exhaustive literature research and an analysis of the opinions of a balanced (geographically and by nature of activity) cross-section of stakeholders in this field (business, academic centres, business schools, consulting firms, business support organisations and government). The survey was carried out by means of standard questionnaires sent in March 2002 to respondents in the 15 Member States of the European Union, Japan and the United States.
In total, some 433 completed questionnaires were returned. The information collected from the survey was completed via phone interviews with the most representative stakeholders, which went into more detail on certain issues of relevance for the study and clarified some outstanding questions.
