"Okada's book is a much welcome contribution to studies on the management of knowledge-intensive organizations. A unique focus on urban resilience allows her to recognize the key emerging trends in collaborative society and citizen science movements, and describe the key new technologies and strategies needed to address them". ---- Dariusz Jemielniak, Head, MINDS (Management in Networked and Digital Societies) Department, Kozminski University, Poland, Faculty Associate, Berkman-Klein Center for Internet and Society, Harvard University, USA, and co-author of Collaborative Society (2020) This book examines what mechanisms enable science-intensive organizations to broaden beneficiaries of science in urban settings. Focusing on organizations that constitute urban resilience systems and networks, it maps the contributions of academic institutions, established multinationals, and entrepreneur firms in environmental, material, and related life sciences. It then develops a model of strategy and governance for organizations to invest in and implement new environmental material science projects. This book provides researchers with a framework based on management theories of R&D and resource allocation for resolving urban issues. Ellie Okada long served as a professor of management who continues to specialize in management theory. Former visiting scholar at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and Columbia Business School, she worked for a research university in Japan, Yokohama National University, as a tenured full professor for over 24 years. She is Senior Academic Fellow, President, and Founder of the Boston Cancer Policy Institute, a research institute of management in new social science
