From followers to leaders managing technology and innovation in newly industrializing countries by Naushad Forbes ( )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How to improve technology management in follower-firms wherever they are located. This textbook is the result of ten years of teaching international technology management to managers and engineers (at Stanford University) and managing technology in a successful medium-sized firm in India. The last years have seen a profusion of books and articles on managing technology, focused almost exclusively on leading edge firms in leading edge countries. If one's firm is not IBM or Intel or Hewlett Packard or Glaxo or Microsoft, and has no expectation of pushing forward the frontiers of industrial knowledge, there is surprisingly little experience to draw on. This book expects to fill the gap. This book argues that succeeding as a follower-firm requires learning from many experiences and avoiding simplistic 'how-to' approaches that prescribe one best practice. We argue that there are many 'leading edges' and that they appear in the most unlikely places. The book contains major case studies from many different firms in twelve countries in five continents, in industry segments as diverse as pharmaceuticals, software, garments, beer and steel.; They show that successful experiences can arise anywhere in the world. Individual chapters cover the role of innovation on the shop-floor, the importance of mixing process and product innovation, the challenges involved in building an innovation culture, the special role of R&D, and of design, all from a follower perspective. These topics instruct a deeper understanding of strategy in follower-firms, simultaneously providing insight for public policy in building local technological capacity

Industrialization and development by Tom, ed Hewitt ( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Technological change, restructuring of industrial production and the international division of labour - all mean that developing countries are caught up in a global process of industrialization. This book is about understanding both the positive and negative aspects of this process in developing countries." "The book is arranged in two parts. The first is about the international economy. It analyses global trends in industrialization, discusses the debt crisis, looks in detail at two relatively successful Third World industrializers (Brazil and South Korea) and then outlines the economic theories which inform our understanding of industrialization and development." "The second part of the book takes a different cut through the issues. It explores specific aspects of industrialization - technology, gender relations, culture and the environment. These not only merit study in their own right but are also used to bring out some of the limitations of orthodox interpretations of industrialization and development." "The book's 11 chapters are written by specialist authors using key questions, diagrams, tables, photographs and summaries to illustrate and clarify the text. It will be invaluable to undergraduate and sixth form students of development studies, geography, history, economics, anthropology or international politics. It will be particularly useful to development practitioners, such as those joining the staff of official development agencies or nongovernmental organizations."--Jacket
