Editorial: Technology and innovation management: past research, present findings and future directions
The management of technological innovation has become one of the most attractive and promising fields within the management areana. However, for the time being, there is no solid theoretical basis in our academic community for the study of innovation management. This shortage is especially shown by the coexistence of radically different methods of approach and the absence of a precise and commonly accepted terminology.
