Have you ever wondered how the innovation process benefits from internationalization?

We know that globalization is the main economic phenomenon of the last few centuries. After all, since the late 1980s, multinational companies from Europe and North America have been shifting the production aspect of their business to Asian countries. But what else is there to know?

Relevant for both academics and practitioners, Managing innovation: Internationalization of Innovation explores a diverse view on the international innovation process. It presents main research milestones on the internationalization of innovation and discusses current phenomena like lean and global innovation, with case studies from China, Germany, India and Russia. The book also provides readers with a unique insight into this interesting industry by giving a structured overview of mobile technologies.

This book retails for US$118 / £105 (hardback). To order or know more about the book, visit http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/Q0195.
