In the present chapter we take a closer look at the connection between innovation and enterprise strategy. In discussing this connection, we assume that enterprises are essentially strategy driven or that they are managed according to strategic principles and plans. This implies that all of the activities that are essential to the well-being of enterprises should be taken account of in the enterprise strategy.
