Further information

‘The topics of technology strategy and innovation management are highly complex, often misunderstood, and frequently over-simplified. However, that is not because they are understudied. Precisely because these topics are so important, given their central role in competition, productivity, and economic growth, they have received a great deal of attention from management scholars, economists, sociologists, and other social scientists. Unfortunately, much of this research remains in academic journals, without context and meaning as an aggregate body of work. Professors Leiblein and Ziedonis have carefully articulated the key findings from this literature, organizing them around three general themes: creating, capturing, and delivering value, in a way that makes this important line of inquiry much more meaningful and accessible to practitioners and scholars alike. This is a timely and important book.’
– Ajay K. Agrawal, University of Toronto, Canada

‘In Technology Strategy and Innovation Management, Leiblein and Ziedonis have done a thorough job assembling a collection of papers at the heart of technology strategy and innovation management. The collection provides many of the seminal articles in technology and innovation and across multiple research arenas, including innovation typologies, value creation and capture, resource allocation, organizational and inter-organizational approaches and real options. The collection will certainly become a “must-have” for anyone interested in better understanding technology strategy and innovation management.’
– Jeffrey Macher, Georgetown University, US

‘A timely, well considered collection of influential articles that have, and continue to, shape the conversation in strategy and innovation.’
– Ron Adner, Tuck Business School, Dartmouth College, US

This essential volume brings together contributions by leading scholars in strategic management, which analyse contemporary thought in complex, knowledge-intensive and dynamic environments. This set of scholarly articles examines the unique challenges posed in these settings and explores the logic that may be used to evaluate innovative investment proposals. It also considers how to capture value from assets in product or knowledge markets, and how to design organizations to assemble resources in innovative settings.

This important collection, with an original introduction by the editors, will be of great value to academics and practitioners interested in technology strategy and innovation management.
