16 A range of widely different questions can therefore be posed around innovation and the cumulative development of understanding requires clarification of the focus of, and reasons for, asking these questions. Some of the difficulties in understanding innovation come from the specific and differing languages used in, and approaches to, its study brought to the issues by the wide range of academic disciplines interested in researching it. Economists, geographers, psychologists, public policy analysts, historians, 26 Understanding Innovation scientists, and students of business, management, and organization and innovation studies all contribute to the theoretical and empirical understanding of innovation.

Scholars such as Freeman and Perez (1988; Freeman and Louca 2001; Perez 2003) have identified a series of technological revolutions that have occurred since the mid eighteenth century. 2. We have added to this analysis an idealized characterization of innovation which is developed later in this chapter. 1 Some of the major analytical approaches to innovation Major focus Concept or category of innovation Key text(s) Source Science push Market pull Bush (1946) Myers and Marquis (1969), von Hippel (1988) Rothwell and Zegveld (1985) Coupling model Freeman (1974) Tushman and Anderson (1986) Radical or incremental Continuous or discontinuous Life cycle Modular or architectural Dominant designs Robust designs Sustaining or disruptive Open or closed Innovation space Technology fusion Abernathy and Utterback (1978) Henderson and Clark (1990) Utterback (1994) Rothwell and Gardiner (1988) Christensen (1997) Chesbrough (2003) Tidd et al.

Of the thousands of potential new drugs currently in development, for example, only one or two will eventually succeed in the marketplace. Schilling and Hill (1998) estimate that roughly one-third to two-thirds of new products that actually reach the market fail to produce a financial return. Governments often fail in the policies they develop to encourage innovation (Cohen and Noll 1991). The work of Scherer (1999) shows that returns from innovation are highly skewed. Only a few innovations in a portfolio produce significantly aboveaverage returns.
