About this book


This book makes a valuable contribution to innovation management in the form of an interdisciplinary analysis of contemporary international approaches. By introducing the concept of a 'techno-corporate gap,' it also highlights the crucial role that companies play in creating and managing innovation in order to increase (or decrease) the technological gap between countries, and in their economic development.

The originality of the book lies in its systems thinking oriented approach to the techno-corporate gap and technological gap, and their relation to corporate governance. These aspects are analyzed in detail, and not merely from an economic standpoint, but also with regard to innovativeness and regional social development.


Corporate innovation management Innovation and corporate governance Techno-corporate gap in organizations The balance of technological payments Digitization of business processes and E-Business Blockchain prospects in the supply chain Joint ventures and competitive advantages
