We are living in a world of innovation. Under the pressure of technological advancement and global industries, economies and societies are changing rapidly (Gebhart, 2002). To stay in business, companies have to race to compete in respect to new products, features, better quality, more attractive styling, and communication (Henry, 2001; Janszen, 2000).
