Technological innovation and diffusion within an enterprise are a key success factor.

Abstract

Technological innovation and diffusion within an enterprise are a key success factor. The introduction of a new technology aims to improve productivity and quality of production processes, and also to better adapt the products to the market needs. Nevertheless, innovation introduction cannot leave out considering organizational and technical factors. We hypothesize that empirical studies are crucial for introducing a new technology, and for this reason, in this paper we investigate the relation between empirical studies and technical/organizational factors in order to identify which type of empirical studies are more suitable for achieving technological innovation diffusion. This analysis is done with respect to empirical studies carried out in SERLAB, at the University of Bari. Keywords: empirical studies, technological innovation, knowledge transfer, empirical knowledge
