Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 21st century, intangible resources such as knowledge and social capital have become as necessary to the modern economy as coal, diamonds, and oil were to the past. This shift from product-focused to service-focused economies necessitates a drastic re-thinking of the ways in which we support the mission and business of economic development on a global, regional, and national scale. In order to effect and sustain a positive change, innovation and knowledge networks need to be connected to every aspect of life, from the private and domestic, to the corporate and the global. This book integrates a wide variety of perspectives and treatises on mutually adaptive and complementary processes of knowledge generation, diffusion, and transfer within organizations and industry, addressing both the what and how to questions of knowledge management in a conceptual as well as an applied manner. It should be of strong interest to science and technology policy makers, research and development managers, business decision makers, and students of innovation and knowledge dynamics alike.

Book News Annotation:

In the preface to this collection of 18 papers, editors Carayannis (management science, George Washington U.) and Campbell (international affairs, George Washington U.) declare that the key to becoming a high-income knowledge generating and exporting country are "innovation and knowledge clusters and networks linking public and private, domestic, regional, and global sector research and technological development entities." Among the key themes addressed are the relation of knowledge to research and development, science and technology, and innovation; issues of knowledge creation, production, use, and diffusion; multi-level systems approaches to the conceptualization, design, and management of real and virtual knowledge stock and knowledge flow; and definitions of innovation networks and knowledge clusters. Also examined are indicators for defining and measuring the impact of knowledge on economic performance; homogenous versus heterogenous growth of knowledge; and knowledge and complexity.
