Special Issue on: "Strategies for Innovation in Emerging Market Economies: Evidence from Some Countries in Asia"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Ford Lumban Gaol, Bina Nusantara University, Indonesia

The technological and social changes that have been taking place in society and the global economy – much of them being influenced by the information and communication technologies (ICTs) – have impacts on firms’ and non-firms’ innovation and competitive strategy, behaviour of consumers and citizens and social and work relations. This affirmation is based on the principle that strategies for innovation have the potential to make possible the development of better living standards, work, entertainment, energy production systems and transport environments.

Therefore, firms, industries and governments will have an even greater reliance on innovation to deliver their outcomes to meet their expectations of consumers and citizens. Strategies of innovation will involve interaction between several dimensions such as organisations, technologies, human resources, environmental issues and financial issues. Emerging economies, due to their growing role in the global economy and their inherent challenges, will be required to undertake even more creative innovation strategies.

Authors are invited to submit original papers on the research and practice of creating and implementing strategies for innovation in emerging economies.
