Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Minnesota Studies is a landmark work. First published in 1989, it successfully addresses the typical methodological limitations of the majority of innovation research, producing an amazing array of insights that we take for granted today. The strength of the book is that it reports on an integrated stream of high quality innovation research ... [and] addresses the fundamental concepts of innovation rather than blind prescriptions about how to innovate. Academics designing research should be acquainted with this and with subsequent journal articles as a model for innovation research. ... the first printing was ahead of its time."—The Journal of Product Innovation Management
