Field of Research
Innovation Management

 

Enterprises have developed comprehensive systems to manage innovation processes. With these systems, firms attempt to respond to opportunities and threats by introducing new products, services, processes or business models. Especially in established and large companies this creates a field of tension where different forms of innovation processes are competing and causing frictions in the organization. In this field of research we aim at identifying the causes of such frictions and particularly effective approaches of innovation management.
