    A Road to Mutual Fund Innovations
    Nidhi Walia
    Financial sector has witnessed a great transformation especially after globalization and as a result now the investors in India have a number of opportunities to invest. Now anyone can see the investors shifting their funds from traditional investment sources to emerging innovative financial products. Further, risk appetite of investors is also increasing in anticipation of superior returns and the financial intermediaries need to understand the varied level of risk that different strata of investors can afford and accordingly use their professional diligence.

So, the present study has been undertaken with the objective to match investors’ expectations and investment styles of mutual fund AMCs. This book aims to propose a systematic roadmap that mutual fund AMCs...

  • Javier Palacios Fenech. Adoption and Discontinuance of Innovations
    Adoption and Discontinuance of Innovations
    Javier Palacios Fenech
    Diffusion of 31 durable goods in 70 countries over a period of 32 years is analyzed using principal component analysis biplots. While marketers have focused on adoption of innovations, studying discontinuance provides an opportunity to explore the needs of the market and create a more sustainable approach to marketing activity. Discontinuance, disposal and dispossession are de?ned: Discontinuance is studied from a technology-centered point of view, and disposal and dispossession from an object-centered and a people-centered point of view. The discontinuance process is divided into ?ve categories, and its relation to the adoption process is studied. Dive is a sudden increase in the rate of discontinuance of durable goods. A hidden incubation time which affects time-to-dive and may cause an over-prediction is found for every type of product category. Applications and extensions of these ?ndings on products entering the decline stage of their life-cycle are discussed.
  • John A. Daly. Advocacy
    John A. Daly
    Many of us have good ideas, but very few of them are ever acted on. What steps can you take to ensure that your own good ideas are realized? When a group of people get together to generate ideas for solving a problem or achieving a goal, sometimes the best ideas are ignored. Worse, ideas with far less likelihood of success may be adopted. Why are so many good ideas dismissed? Leadership and communication expert John Daly has a straightforward answer: They weren't sold well. If the best idea is yours, how can you increase the chances that it gains the support of the group? In Advocacy: Championing Ideas and Influencing Others, Daly explains in full detail how to transform ideas into practice. To be successful, people in every type of organization must find practical and action-oriented ways to market their ideas and achieve buy-in from others. Daly offers a comprehensive action guide that explains how to shape opinion, inspire change, and achieve results. Drawing on current...
  • Yazid Abdullahi Abubakar. Agglomeration of High-Tech Firms and New Product Innovations
    Agglomeration of High-Tech Firms and New Product Innovations
    Yazid Abdullahi Abubakar
    Knowledge is the driving force of innovative small firms in high-tech industries. Knowledge is however context dependent, and varies across regions. This research explores differences and similarities in external knowledge factors accounting for new product innovations between small firms in high and low agglomeration regions. A framework is built in which small firms develop new products in two distinct environments: agglomeration i.e. ‘high agglomeration’ and regions lacking agglomeration i.e. ‘low agglomeration’ region. The framework considers external influences on new product innovations to be separated out into knowledge spillovers, referred to as non-market externalities and pecuniary knowledge externalities i.e. market based externalities. Based on interviews and surveys of firms in the Cambridge and Essex in the UK, it was found that: sources of product innovations by small firms in high and low agglomeration differ, in that small firms in low agglomeration are more...

  • Maria Potoroczyn. Ambidextrous Leadership Driving Strategic Innovation
    Ambidextrous Leadership Driving Strategic Innovation
    Maria Potoroczyn
    "Ambidextrous leadership driving strategic innovation" is a Master's dissertation in Innovation Management. The work explores the necessary duality that organisations need to maintain in order to be able to drive innovation initiatives, as well as maintain the profitability of core business. Operational activities require fundamentally different skills, mind sets and frameworks in contrast to innovation efforts. Where core operations can be characterised by needing to maximise efficiency, minimising risks, ensuring scalability, predictability and short term profitability - innovation requires space for exploration, slack, failure, and long-term perspectives. This dissertation looks at the difficulties leaders have in juggling those two, radically different efforts.
  • Saheed Adebayo Gbadegesin and Younas Khan. Analysis of Innovation Process
    Analysis of Innovation Process
    Saheed Adebayo Gbadegesin and Younas Khan
    Innovation is a core competency for almost all companies and organizations. Innovation is a set of processes and activities, which starts from idea generation and is followed by research and development and finally the successful commercialization of a product or idea. Thus, managing innovation processes is a very challenging and complex task for organizations. Therefore, the purpose of this work is to enable organizations to understand the innovation process by comparing different models of innovation processes in theory and practice. In addition, this study highlights the new model for developing entrepreneur, new product and/or new company. The study was carried out through secondary data. The required information was mainly collected through company accounts, online databases, textbooks, journals, press, and directories. Innovation and new product development process models were analyzed with the help of available information from innovation and incubation centers. At the end,...

  • M. Julio Barragan. Biological innovations in the absence of patents
    Biological innovations in the absence of patents
    M. Julio Barragan
    Patents are usually thought to be essential for innovation. For instance, the widespread conviction that US plant variety innovation during the 19th century was insignificant is partly attributed to the fact that, unlike mechanical innovations, no patent arrangements where available for plants at the time. This book introduces previously untapped archival sources to challenge this widespread conviction. At the theoretical level, the book challenges conventional wisdom on the required conditions for private sector innovation: plants were innovated even though patents for plants did not exist, plant innovations could be easily copied, and there was no way to rely on secrecy. At the firm level, new successful varieties were found to start earning a premium, which slowly disappeared over time. At the industry level, the equilibrium number of firms in the industry was found to be affected by shifts in demand. The book concludes with a discussion on the implications for two important...
  • Ruy Quadros. Brazilian innovation in the global automotive value chain
    Brazilian innovation in the global automotive value chain
    Ruy Quadros
    Until a few years ago, innovation in the automotive industry was centralised in the US, Europe and Japan. Manufacturing had moved to the industrialised emerging countries, but not innovation. This has now changed and the spread of Brazilian innovation activities in the automotive global value chain attests this shift. Yet, little is known on how and to what extent these new spaces of innovation have been developing and are affecting the division of labour between North and South. This book addresses this question drawing on an in-depth and extensive study of the building up of technological capabilities in Brazilian automotive industry in connection with multinational assemblers and suppliers off-shoring and outsourcing innovation activities from suppliers located in Brazil. Seeking to understand the dynamics of this process, the book analyses the new role of Brazilian subsidiaries of multinational assemblers and auto parts suppliers as well as of locally owned suppliers and research...

    Bringing high-tech innovations to market
    Federico Frattini
    The work aims to develop an understanding of how decisions taken during the commercialisation and market launch of new high-tech products can affect their market success. By drawing into diffusion of innovation theories, innovation management and marketing research, the work presents the cases of 16 consumer innovations and 10 industrial new products and discusses the reasons underlying superior customer acceptance. The emerging theory developed in this work illustrates the key role played by the early adopters of the innovation for their market success, as well as the impact that market interconnectedness has on diffusion processes. Implications for researchers and managers are discussed at length in the work.
  • Borja Nunez Rodriguez. Building SME Innovation Model on Triple Bottom-line Responsibility
    Building SME Innovation Model on Triple Bottom-line Responsibility
    Borja Nunez Rodriguez
    Public opinion have widely recognized that SMEs are ahead in the list of organisations harshly affected by the dynamics of globalization, this is of transcendent relevance to the worldwide community, as SMEs are the backbone of the global economy, accounting for up to 97% of global enterprises, 40-60 % of global GDP, and up to 70% of employment in the OECD. In this context, the present study investigates the correlation among responsible innovation and TBL responsible business opportunities, and how when strategically integrated in broader systems (e.g. responsible supply chains, collaborative innovation networks, etc.), TBL responsible innovation becomes a critical driver to long-term sustainability in contemporary entrepreneurial models.
  • Laura Mancuso. Can patents deter innovation?
    Can patents deter innovation?
    Laura Mancuso
    The increased use of intellectual property rights (IPRs) in scientific research has sparked a vigorous debate over what is known as the “anti-commons effect”. At its core, the anti-commons debate is an argument over whether such expansion of IPR in the form of patents is contaminating researchers’ incentives to freely disseminate their findings, “privatizing” upstream research and limiting the benefits from scientific progress. Since empirical literature on the anti-commons effect is quite limited, the aim of this thesis is to provide an empirical analysis of this phenomenon, focused on the academic biomedical research in Milan. Results suggest that patenting activity is widespread among academic researchers in this context. However, patenting does not seem to limit research and publishing activity. Access to tangible research inputs from other seems problematic for scientific competition, not for previous patents on these inputs. A key reason for the negligible impact of patents...

The study adopted a quantitaive approach using survey questionnaire to collect data from respondents at the variuos banking outlets in Klang Valley. The results indicated that age and income levels exhibited significant relationship with adoption of retail internet banking. Whereas, gender, race, education and ocupation did not affect the adoption of retail internet banking in the Malaysian context. The result shows that younger consumers favor new banking channel. Therefore, bankers should promote internet banking among younger generation and also educate older consumers that adoption of internet banking is free from risk.
  • Peter Geib and James Swenson. China:The Leadership Challenge of Continuous Innovation
    China:The Leadership Challenge of Continuous Innovation
    Peter Geib and James Swenson
    The authors propose a framework for understanding transformational leadership and its impact on China’s historic transformation. The analysis proposes a model that furthers innovation and entrepreneurship in China. The purpose is to show the dynamics of reform that affect product innovation and entrepreneurship. The major question the authors ask is, “Why does leadership fail at the policy level and organizational level?” The authors propose that the answer lies in the failure to innovate. The authors look at effective change management. In part, the research stems from over 350 interviews in China with professional level influencers beginning in 1988 and most recently in the summer of 2013. Furthermore, the authors explore the latest research on leadership activities generally and how it relates to the ongoing China transformation. Finally, the authors provide specific strategic suggestions for navigating in the China market.
  • Hsing-Er Lin. Competing through Innovation and Ambidexterity
    Competing through Innovation and Ambidexterity
    Hsing-Er Lin
    In this book, we examined the factors (i.e., strategies, contextual factors, antecedents and capabilities) that were assumed to influence the extent to which innovation and ambidexterity occur; and how innovation and ambidexterity are likely to be undertaken and executed to generate greater innovation and ambidexterity that resulted in higher business performance and sustainable competitive advantage. We conducted case studies and administered surveys to collect data from American and Chinese companies, and administered survey questionnaires to collect data from Taiwanese companies to answer our main research question “how do strategies, contextual factors, antecedents and capabilities foster innovation and ambidexterity?” Our results provide some intriguing insights into how firms may be able to foster innovation by managing their contextual facilitators and antecedents to enable the effective execution of innovation, knowledge strategies, and multiple types of innovation...
