Selected Topics in New Product Development and Innovation research: a workshop with Professor Abbie Griffin.
Research in the domain of Innovation Management was initiated in the early 1970’s. Research in the domain of New Product Development started in the early 1980s.
Over the last 40 years, topics within the domains have expanded, publishable research questions and methods have evolved over time, multiple journals have entered the field to provide publication opportunities, and the field has expanded enormously from a few isolated researchers to a cadre of over 250 academics internationally, investigating numerous topics.
However, even with an expanded number of journals publishing in the domain, obtaining publication is becoming more and more difficult.
- Reviews the path that academic research in New Product Development and Innovation Management has taken over the last several decades;
- Analyzes a number of published proposed research agendas to inform your selection of appropriate research questions, given the current state of research in the domain.
