Science Technology and Innovation Policy That is Responsive to Innovation Performers
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an argument and evidence regarding the extent to which science, technology and innovation policies, particularly in developing countries, often ignore the perspectives of innovation performers. Building on theoretical frameworks that draw on strategic management of innovation and learning school perspectives, the paper will make a link to policy implications and will argue that policy that is responsive to innovation performers requires a shift in mindset, the unit of analysis and the work programmes that constitute innovation policy. This writer believes that these changes are highly recommended in order to improve the effectiveness and meaningfulness of innovation.
