Europe is waking up to the challenge of technology and innovation. We see EU commitment to spend 3% of GDP on R&D, but who is thinking about how to spend? Who is thinking about technology management? Does the corporate board have the means to manage this spend? Should some percentage of the R&D be spent on improving technology and innovation management? This is where this book makes a contribution. It brings together the latest practice, research findings and thinking, presented in a way that addresses top management requirements. The goal is to secure the economic future of the firm, in the context of a sustainable industry and society. Using the ideas and methods in this book, the board can assess and improve its own ability to deal with the challenge of technology and innovation.
