Technology and change are two of the most important factors for maintaining a competitive advantage in today's global economy. This is an examination of trends in the analysis of knowledge and technology from an evolutionary perspective. The work emphasizes the importance of knowledge in the creation of technological change and innovation. The authors examine the role of knowledge underlying innovation, and the flows of knowledge and other interactions between and within firms. Combining empirical work with simulations to solve models which are too complex to be understood analytically, the book seeks to present a balanced and complementary approach to an area that is critically important for economic growth and international competitiveness.
