Open Innovation

As an associate editor of Research Policy, I can say that the editorial board is very proud of the recognition that comes from being added to this list. While subjectively many would consider RP on par with journals such as Journal of Business Venturing and Journal of Management Information Systems, by Google’s ranking of high-impact (h5 index) papers it ranks at the top of Entrepreneurship & Innovation journals.

How sustainable consumption relates to knowledge, seriousness and culture

Norbert Bol

Given the dramatic ecological and climatic implications, many policy makers and non-governmental organizations are trying to enhance consumers’ knowledge about the harmful consequences of this excessive consumption behavior. However when policy makers or companies are trying to raise the knowledge-level of consumers, it appears not to be effective. Stimulating sustainable consumption, by policy makers or companies, can not be done adopting a single strategy.

Ultra Innovation

Norbert Bol

In the December edition of Research Policy there is an interesting article by Tavassoli & Karlsson (2015) about the persistence of innovation. However product innovation is more persistent than process innovation, organization innovation and marketing innovation.

Degrowth is more than an Oxymoron?

Norbert Bol

This addiction can be seen in many policy decisions from governments and companies. In their research they used as a case study the American clothing company Patagonia that sells outdoor clothing marketed as sustainable.

Typology for Innovative Organizations

To my opinion, Mintzberg’s work was a refreshing change to the world of organization design that until then has been largely influenced by Taylor’s Scientific Management Approach and Henry Ford’s efficiency-based adaptation of that. In fact, building blocks as ‘middle management’ might only still exist on paper today. But times are changing and organizations are emerging, scaling and managed completely differently.
