IN THIS SUMMARY

The old assumption that manufacturers always develop innovations with their ears tuned to customer needs is often wrong. Innovation comes from various places and usually depends on the field in question. It may come from the innovation user, from a supplier, from a manufacturer, or elsewhere. By studying the trends in such functionally distributed innovation, one can predict and manage the innovation process much better.
