Review:

"Business scholars, economists, industrial engineers, and engineers from other technical fields present the results of an international project of multidisciplinary research into links between innovation and organization. They look at innovation in light of sustainability, organizational networks, entrepreneurship, knowledge management, research and development and technology management, marketing, finance, internationalization, and information systems." --SciTech Book News , Book News Inc., December 2011

In addition to intermingling technological innovation, entrepreneurship, and organizing, Professors Nobre, Walker and Harris have introduced another more contemporary theme - sustainability. In the book's Preface, Nobre makes an important distinction between competitive advantage" and "sustainable development". "Competitive advantage" is a concept based in economic theories about competitive markets; it stresses the value to individual business firms of distinguishing themselves from their competitors by offering valuable and unusual products or services. However, economists and business scholars have defined competitive advantages solely in terms of the benefits to individual business firms and without concern for effects on consumers, communities, nations, societies, or humanity in general. Nobre introduces the term "sustainable development" to describe a kind of business development that maintains a balance between economic and societal goals and between short-run and long-run goals. This is a timely distinction, since the modern global corporation, a brilliant social innovation that extended benefits of commerce around the globe, has become the world's dominant social institution - and is helping to drive every living system on the earth into decline. We live in a time when humans are at the very peak of our technological power. We are making changes in the earth that will echo through the centuries. Sustainable development would seek to benefit not only individual firms but also their societies and the future of humanity." --Alan D. Meyer, University of Oregon, USA; and William H. Starbuck, University of Oregon, USA

In this book the editors have brought together a range of important topics under the heading of Technological, Managerial and Organizational Core Competencies. Nobre, Walker and Harris discuss knowledge management, networks, sustainability, marketing, R&D, Information Systems and internationalization across a range of geographical contexts and organizational settings. Strategically organized in nine sections, the editors combine empirically and theoretically based research contributions from leading commentators around the globe. The diversity of authors providing insights on innovation in different economies highlights the strong international dimension of the book. However, the unique contribution of the book undoubtedly lies in its identification of key creative and typically untapped areas within an organization that can build competencies towards dynamic innovation and sustainable development. Essentially, this book enhances current understanding of the innovation process and platforms its importance as a driver of 21st century entrepreneurship. The book will be of value to those studying and researching the broad field of innovation, particularly as it relates to dynamic organizational processes. The contributions will also be of interest to innovation educators, R&D managers and those working within the general innovation support system. This timely edited text offers a multidisciplinary perspective on innovation, reminding us that innovation is dynamic in nature and highly creative in its origins. --Colette Henry, Royal Veterinary College, University of London, UK
