Abstract and Keywords
Networks are fundamental to understanding and managing innovation. As Schumpeter recognized one hundred years ago, innovation arises from new connections between ideas. Mapping and encouraging these connections through network analysis is therefore one of the best tools for innovation managers. This article introduces complex network analysis and gives a working description of how to conduct a network study. This article briefly reviews the impact of social network analysis on the innovation literature and concludes with a discussion of current technical advances as well as some directions for future development in this important field.
