Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the consequences of technology for the management of innovation and how technology affects the innovation process. It examines the use of technology in the creation of ideas and search for and design of solutions to problems, and on the development and implementation of innovation strategies. The chapter explores the impact of technology on work organization and skills, on services innovation, and how various ‘innovation technologies’—including digital infrastructure, modelling and simulation, visualization and rapid prototyping—affect innovation processes. It argues that innovation technologies are enabling a new form of collective experimentation in innovation, breaking down barriers between organizations, disciplines, and professions, and creating opportunities for designing innovations that are better attuned to markets.

Keywords: innovation technology, skills, innovation processes, innovation strategy, services innovation, digital infrastructure, rapid prototyping
