Any technological advance, innovation or economic growth created by an organization is dependent on how that organization's culture and environment fosters or inhibits these developments. This process is further complicated by the global nature of economic activity and differences in national cultures due to country-specific histories, experiences, traditions and rules. The distinguished authors in this important new book aim to study the nature of organizational innovation and change by examining the complex interplay between entrepreneurship, innovation and culture.

The book addresses a number of important questions including:

  • why do so many technological firms fail to sustain entrepreneurial spirit?
  • is a certain mindset required at the level of the individual entrepreneur?
  • do successful entrepreneurial firms need a certain culture and, if so, what elements make up that culture?
  • what role does national culture, corporate culture and professional culture play?
  • are these issues linked to high levels of innovation, technology development, progress and economic growth and, if so, how are they related?

The book's broad global perspective and multi-disciplinary analysis will ensure a wide and varied readership amongst academics, researchers and practitioners interested in technological and organizational change, entrepreneurship, innovation management and cultural studies.

Contributors: E. Baark, J.F. Boujut, T.E. Brown, I. Chan, A. Fayolle, K. Frenken, T. Fujimoto, G. Hofstede, J. Legardeur, L. Leydesdorff, N.G. Noorderhaven, N. Sharif, A.R. Thurik, H. Tiger, L.M. Uhlaner, J. Ulijn, R. Te Velde, A.R.M. Wennekers, R.E. Wildeman

About the Author:

Edited by Terrence E. Brown, Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Royal Institute of Technology and Associate Professor, Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, Sweden and the late Jan Ulijn, former Professor of International Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Culture, Open University and Emeritus Jean Monnet Chair, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands

Review:

'Brown (entrepreneurship and innovation, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden) and Ulijn (Eindhoven University of technology, The Netherlands) present work by contributors from Europe, the US, and Asia who examine the nature of organizational innovation and change by looking at the interplay between entrepreneurship, innovation, and culture. According to the editors, the book seeks to answer the question, ''What culture is necessary to create new enterprises out of promising technological ideas and to what extent is that a matter of an interaction between technology, economic growth, and social progress?'' The book will be of interest to academics, researchers, and practitioners interested in technological and organizational change.'
