Innovation and firm performance

Part of the Familienunternehmen und KMU book series (KMU)


This chapter describes the relationship between innovation and firm performance. In particular, section 3.1 discusses definitions, innovation types, and two innovation outcome measurement approaches: new product portfolio performance and new product portfolio innovativeness. In section 3.2, I review new product development studies in order to identify TMT-related determinants as drivers of new product performance and innovativeness.
