About the Product

Innovation and Knowledge Management has gained considerable importance over the last 40 years, both as an area of academic research and as an area of professional practice. This growing interest has produced a wealth of highly disparate literature, international in orientation and rooted in both the research agenda and in more pragmatic issues of best practice. Each volume covers a key area of Innovation and Knowledge Management, reflecting both historical roots and cutting-edge scholarship. Volume One covers individual creativity and innovation, with Volume Two focusing on teamwork and group innovation. Volume Three adopts an organization-wide perspective, including papers on the innovation process, resistance to change and radical vs. incremental innovation. Volume Four treats knowledge management in the context of organizational knowledge, knowledge networks, knowledge transfer and organizational learning. Selected and organized by renowned scholars in the field working under the guidance of an international editorial advisory board, this four-volume collection is an invaluable resource to institutions with courses in management and organization studies, as well as professional institutions with personnel development programs.
