Abstract This paper examines Guyana's technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system in relation to diversifying the country's economy away from natural resource exports. The innovation systems approach is used to examine the effectiveness of TVET as a means of building capabilities in Guyana's key industries, gold and sugar, providing a snapshot of the state of the system in early, 2016. Ten interviewees across several areas of expertise were consulted in Georgetown, Guyana. The ...

Abstract Innovation in products and services is seen by scholars, by specialized media in management, and by some managers as the main currency in modern economies. This is because it allows high average market profits, fame for innovators, or brand growth, for example. However, in practice, most managers still treat innovation as a secondary issue on their agendas. This problem results from the inability of market professionals to analyze people inside and outside their companies. It is not pos...

Abstract This study examines whether the number of forward patent citations (along with alternative patent data)—when used as a proxy for the mixing variable—could infer the aggregate amount of economic-innovation information arriving at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in the United States. The results show that the number of forward patent citations, when used as a mixing variable, fails to eliminate total volatility persistence in the conditional variance equation of the exponential general...

Abstract In this paper, we analyze the relationships among innovation efforts, the impacts of these innovations, and the financial performance of Brazilian companies. We hypothesize that innovation efforts do not directly translate into financial performance. Due to the inherent uncertainty of innovative projects, such efforts must first lead to effective innovation results or impacts before they are capable of contributing to a company's financial performance. Using the Brazilian Institute of G...

Abstract The phenomenon of global fragmented production and associated trade in intermediate products, including intangible assets, has changed how economists study globalization and how new public policies are shaped. Understanding cross-border flows of disembodied knowledge, often associated with intellectual property (IP), is essential for analyzing how modern economies operate. Available data to document these international IP-related knowledge flows—namely cross-border payments for IP—are d...

Abstract This paper studies benchmarking on Business Incubators (BIs), aggregating the state of knowledge about benchmarks for BI assessment. Based on 136 papers that evaluate BI performance, this study first investigates all Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) provided by 42 BI assessment studies and the relevant benchmarks for each KPI. The final benchmark list is created by taking seven of the most prominent benchmarking studies as a basis. With this framework, this research contributes to the ...

Abstract Although China is a global trade power, it has low value-added trade, which lies at the bottom of the global value chain. Therefore, there is an urgent need to change the unfavorable position of the international division of labor in China. The global innovation chain is a new development of innovation through which China can implement open innovation and utilize the world's advanced knowledge, technology, information, and other resources to enhance its innovation capabilities, promote ...

Abstract What is our current understanding of innovation and how many types of innovation do we know? Broadly, innovation landscapes are characterized by well-established categories, such as product, process, organizational, and marketing innovation, explained and theorized in terms of their links with technological innovation. However global challenges and changes in the structure of knowledge production, have led to diverse innovations, and recognizing and classifying such innovations is more ...

Abstract Based on diffusion of innovation (DOI) theory and economic consumption analysis as well as the concept of frugal innovation, this study develops an extended DOI model that theorizes the characteristics of the diffusion of frugal information communication technologies (ICTs) and their impacts on the Internet diffusion. This model posits that frugal digital ICTs diffuse more rapidly in developing countries than in developed countries and significantly bridge the digital divide between the...
