    Actions taken in one company in order to speed the transition of R&D results to commercial use are described and evaluated. A useful analysis framework taken from technological forecasting is presented. Conclusions drawn from this analysis are used as a basis for a systematic realignment work, comprising changes in formal organization, communication channels, hiring practices, and introduct...

    A review and meta-analysis was performed of seventy-five articles concerned with innovation characteristics and their relationship to innovation adoption and implementation. One part of the analysis consisted of constructing a methodological profile of the existing studies, and contrasting this with a hypothetical optimal approach. A second part of the study employed meta-analytic statistical tech... View full abstract»
