The Geography Of Innovation from the Author: M.P. Feldman. This book offers a geographic dimension to the study of innovation and product commercialization. Building on the literature in economics and geography, this book demonstrates that product innovation clusters spatially in regions which provide concentrations of the knowledge needed for the commercialization process. The book develops a conceptual model which links the location of new product innovations to the sources of these knowledge inputs. The geographic concentration of this knowledge fonns a technological infrastructure which promotes infonnation transfers, and lowers the risks and the costs of engaging in innovative activity. Empirical estimation confinns that the location of product innovation is related to the underlying technological infrastructure, and that the location of the knowledge inputs are mutually reinforcing in defining a region's competitive advantage. The book concludes by considering the policy implications of these fmdings for both private finns and state governments. This work is intended for academics, policy practitioners and students in the fields of innovation and technological change, geography and regional science, and economic development. This work is part of a larger research effort to understand why the location of innovative activity varies spatially, specifically the externalities and increasing returns which accrue to location. xi Acknowledgements This work has benefitted greatly from discussions with friends and colleagues. I wish to specifically note the contribution of Mark Kamlet, Wes Cohen, Richard Florida, Zoltan Acs and David Audretsch. I would like to thank Gail Cohen Shaivitz for her dedication in editing the final manuscript.

Commercialization For Innovative Products In The Residential Construction Industry from the Author: . This work presents the development of a new framework for the commercialization of innovative products in the residential construction industry. It is the aim of this work to identify commercialization decisions, actions, risks, barriers and accelerators specific to the residential construction industry market that will increase the acceptance of product innovations for those developing them. Commercialization is broadly defined as the process of developing a business enterprise from an idea, through feasibility and implementation, to its acceptance into a market (USDOE 1999, Goldsmith 2003). Commercialization frameworks describe the concurrent decisions and actions along the innovation development process, optimizing all of the technical and business decisions required for a successful introduction to the marketplace. Successful commercialization frameworks serve as a form of development plan, promoting solutions to questions and problems that arise along the development path. This research derives such a framework for the commercialization of innovative products and makes it specific to residential construction through the following tasks: 1. Understanding standard terminology: defining innovation and commercialization as they relate to this work. 2. Creating a lens for the unique nature of commercialization in this industry: deriving a commercialization framework (matrix) from the research literature in business, construction, and concurrent engineering, capable of accepting later alterations. 3. Understanding the manufacturerâs role and risks: conducting case study interviews for fifteen innovative residential construction products that specify important tasks, risks and benefits for commercialization. 4. Understanding the role, risks and benefits of builders, as users of innovation: comparing case studies and workshop surveys of many residential construction industry players that focus on the builder to establish parameters for the innovation commercialization.

Innovation And Commercialization Of Emerging Technologies from the Author: . Technological innovation is essential to the future well-being of the United States. The ability of the nation to sustain economic growth, increase its standard of living, and improve human health and the environment depends, in many ways, on its success in developing and commercializing new products, processes, and services. The growing capabilities of competitors in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere around the world increasingly challenge the ability of U.S. firms to convert the nation's science and technology base into a competitive advantage. Such concerns have prompted much debate about the proper role of government in encouraging innovation and the commercialization of new technologies. To date, however, the debate has been hampered by an incomplete understanding of the ways in which firms develop and market new products, processes, and services and the barriers they must overcome in the process.

Technology Commercialization from the Author: Sten A. Thore. Technology Commercialization: DEA and Related Analytical Methods for Evaluating The Use and Implementation of Technical Innovation examines both general Research & Development commercialization and targeted new product innovation. New product development is a major occupation of the technical sector of the global economy and is viewed in many ways as a means of economic stability for a business, an industry, and a country. The heart of the book is a detailing of the analytical methods-with special, but not exclusive emphasis on DEA methods-for evaluating and ranking the most promising R & D and technical innovation being developed. The sponsors of the research and development may involve universities, countries, industries, and corporations-all of these sources are covered in the book. In addition, the trade-off of environmental problems vis-Ă -vis new product development is discussed in a section of the book. Sten Thore (editor and author) has woven together the chapter contributions by a strong group of international researchers into a book that has characteristics of both a monograph and a unified edited volume of well-written papers in DEA, technology evaluation, R&D, and environmental economics. Finally, the use of DEA as an evaluation method for product innovation is an important new development in the field of R&D commercialization.

Innovation Commercialization And Start Ups In Life Sciences from the Author: James F. Jordan. Innovation is the translation of a new method, idea, or product into reality and profit. It is a process of connected steps that accumulates into your brand or reputation. However, there can be many pitfalls and wrong turns on the road to realizing this goal. Innovation, Commercialization, and Start-Ups in Life Sciences details the methodologies necessary to create a successful life sciences start-up from initiation to exit. You will gain an appreciation for the necessary data, partnership, and skills to be acquired and the constituencies that must be satisfied along the way. The book examines how life sciences start-ups can create an exit for their investors by recognizing that a liquidity event is not consummated without due diligence. Due diligence is bigger than validating accounting transactions. It ensures the company is solving an important customer problem, demonstrating sales access, and making sure that intellectual property is impervious to competitive advancement. The due diligence process supports the telling of a compelling story to customers, investors, regulators, and acquirers. Written by an expert who has worked with more than 200 life sciences start-ups during the past decade, the book discusses specific processes and investor milestones that must be navigated to align customer, funder, and acquirer needs. It examines these processes from the perspective of marketing value through a focus on the needs of individual constituents—investors, regulators, customers, and exit candidates. The book presents data and analytical processes articulating the fundable milestones for angel and venture capital. It gives you the tools needed to create branding for public investors and more.

Open Innovation from the Author: Abbie Griffin. A clear, practical guide to implementing Open Innovation for new product development Open Innovation: New Product Development Essentials from the PDMA is a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of the Open Innovation method. Written by experts from the Product Development and Management Association, the book packages a collection of Open Innovation tools in a digestible and actionable format. Real-world case studies drawn from the authors' own successes and failures illustrate the concepts presented, providing accurate representation of the opportunities and challenges of Open Innovation implementation. Key tools are presented with a focus on immediate applications for business, allowing NPD professionals to easily discern where this cutting edge development method can push innovation forward. Open Innovation assumes that companies can and should use both internal and external ideas and paths to market, permeating the boundaries between firm and environment. Innovations transfer outward and inward through purchase, licensing, joint ventures, and spin-offs, allowing companies to expand beyond their own research and dramatically improve productivity through collaboration. PDMA Essentials provides practical guidance on exploiting the Open Innovation model to these ends, with clear guidance on all aspects of the new product development process. Topics include: Product platforming and idea competitions Customer immersion and interaction Collaborative product design and development Innovation networks, rewards, and incentives Many practitioners charged with innovation have only a vague understanding of the specific tools available for Open Innovation, and how they might be applied. As the marketplace shifts dramatically to keep pace with changing consumer behaviors, remaining relevant increasingly means ramping up innovation processes. PDMA Essentials provides the tools NPD practitioners need to implement a leading innovation method, and drive continued growth.

Breakthrough Food Product Innovation Through Emotions Research from the Author: David Lundahl. More than 95% of all consumer product launched in the packaged goods sector fail to achieve their goals for success. Breakthrough Food Product Innovation Through Emotions Research gives a clear answer for innovation teams seeking to increase product success rates by breaking through the clutter in an otherwise undifferentiated, commoditized marketplace. Through case studies, it lays out a practical approach for applying emotions research throughout the food innovation and product development process. The basic premise is that emotions are the chief motivation for why consumers sense, select, seek and share their food product experiences. With this novel framework, the science of consumer behavior is made operational for innovation teams. Emotions insight inspires innovation teams to create and helps guide decision making as they design sensory cues and other behavior drivers into products that make consumers want to consume. This book has implications for the whole innovation team - innovators such as product developers, designers, creative chiefs, and marketers; strategists such as line managers; and researchers such as sensory and marketing researchers. Presents a behaviour-driven approach to innovation for the development of breakthrough food products Illustrates a collaborative framework to inspire creativity and guide decision making through emotions insights Explores a research framework that gets to the "whys" of consumer behavior by distilling the science of emotions into research insights Defines design and development methods to build sensory cues into packaging and packaged foods that deliver emotional impact Explains research methods that get to the "so whats" of insights through emotions research Provides case studies and examples proving the value of the behavior-driven approach to food product innovation
