Item description for Managing Global Innovation: Uncovering the Secrets of Future Competitiveness by Roman Boutellier...

What are the secrets of competitive R&D on a global scale? The nineties have seen the largest international R&D expansion ever. Investigating more than 1000 R&D laboratories of 80 companies, this book presents the largest description of global R&D practice. Based on 240 research interviews and case studies from 18 best-practice companies, the authors introduce new concepts and trends that will shape global R&D management in the early 21st century.

"Managing Global Innovation is a rich compendium of new concepts of global R&D, enlivened by 18 excellent best-in-class case studies. What is especially impressive, the authors bridge seamlessly theoretical and practical issues about how companies create, transform and implement new technology in an expanding marketplace. This will be intriguing to both the industry and the academic world. The lessons learned are invaluable. The book is a real tour de force, probably destined to become a standard in this field for some time to come."
Professor Jeff Huang, Harvard University

The best I read on innovation management  Oct 5, 2000
Lots of practical examples! Clear structure, no easy answers, but insightful views based on practice and supported but academic concepts.

This is a great book for all who drive innovation!

Excellent book!  Jun 1, 2000
'Managing Global Innovation' is a must-read for anyone interested in new product development in a globalizing world. This book presents a coherent framework for international innovation strategy, global R&D organization, and the execution of transnational R&D projects. The many examples make theory and concepts easy to understand. Moreover, the book features a collection of indepth case studies of otherwise little described companies. If you ever wondered how companies like SAP, Roche, or HP compete at the forefront of technology development, then this is the book to get. All in all, a well-conceived book that immediately appeals with its balance of applicability and theory.
