Innovation and IT are intertwined. In order to understand how, "Innovation and IT in an International Context" takes an interdisciplinary view of innovation in an international and digital world. It addresses strategic and operational aspects of R&D and new product development, emphasizing knowledge management, configurational design, distance and diversity. From an economics and strategic management perspective, its first chapters deal with degree of openness, distance and specialization, and examine innovative performance in terms of patents, mergers and acquisition and exports. The second section takes a configurational approach, either at a theoretical level for general design, or in a managerial way for implementing Product Lifecycle Management systems. It also treats coordination and productivity issues. In the third part, which considers the operational level, the issues of diversity and distance are addressed more specifically and in an international context
