Referring to the U.S. and German chemical industry the book presents structures, processes and organization of corporate innovation and research and their interdependencies and dependency on "technology intelligence".
Using selected cases and comparisons for the U.S. and Germany approaches to managing innovation are elaborated in terms of generic processes and well-defined configurational settings which may guide actions. It provides a detailed description of the current status and innovation essentials of the U.S. and German chemical industry, but includes also historical perspectives.
The book elaborates systematically intelligence as the basis and key prerequisite for continuous innovation, for research and development and sustainable growth of technology-oriented companies and provides an integrative approach for innovation, corporate chemical research and technology intelligence. Focusing innovation on an information and intelligence problem allows presenting architectural and organizational characteristics and models for "technology intelligence-oriented organizations".
The special role of information technology for such an organization is exemplified by presenting the model-compatible business, systems and technical architectures of an operational database-centric intelligence system.
Generally the book extends the "what and why" to the "how".
