In: Architecting Enterprise

    (EGADE Business School)


Companies that organize their innovation efforts in systematic, well-managed ways are those whose efforts will be rewarded. This chapter critically examines organizational behavior toward innovation and technology application in products and services. A systematic model of innovation management, which links strategy, problem-solving, and cultural change tailored to the needs of each firm is discussed. It is argued that emerging firms are aggressive in innovation of products and services and are prone to managing change in the organization. Such dynamic behavior of new enterprises is pro-technology changes and largely offers quick and intermediate solutions to consumers in the market and gains competitive advantage. The issues of organizational learning and innovation theory, organizational complexity, taxonomy of innovation, organizational discipline, innovation models, and transformation of innovation among emerging enterprises are all discussed in the chapter.
