Foundations of research in the field of cognitive distance
Literature on cognitive distance in an innovation context is very scarce. Therefore, this chapter analyses existing research streams and schools of thought in cognitive distance literature and their applicability in an innovation context in order to study the implications for new product development. Co-citation analysis is applied to identify and visualise the different research areas dealing with cognitive distance, with the aim of detecting conceptual subdomains applicable for the individual cognitive distance potentially evident between product developers and distant target groups.
