Personal perspective
Personal perspective

  • Complex and subtle link between managerial choice and innovative performance

  • Managerial choices – sources of ‘dynamic capabilities’

    • Innovation and corporate strategy

    • New product development process

    • Organisational design and routines

    • Relationship to external environment – ‘distributed innovation systems’ or ‘open innovation’

    • Processes commercialisation of new innovations

    • Use and integration of different knowledge sources

  • Shaped by age, size and industry

  • Combination of methods

    • Case studies – fly-by interviews, in-depth cases, observation etc.

    • Statistical methods – CIS, Patent data, OECD STAN, Innovation databases, Ad-hoc surveys etc.

  • One danger is that improvement in databases in scientific and technological activities will greatly increase the emphasis given to the professionally safe option in academic careers; namely, regression analysis to test established theories. This would be a pity, since new theories emerge from new data (Pavitt, 1998, emphasis added).

  • Hard and soft measures

    • The ‘phony’ war – false sense of tangibility

  • Breadth and depth

    • E-commerce questions

    • U-I links

  • Common method bias

    • Performance data collected at the same time as explanatory variables

  • Stand alone

    • Connection to production statistics

    • Other ONS surveys – R&D data, e-commerce etc.
