Evaluation and Performance Measurement of Research and Development

Techniques and Perspectives for Multi-Level Analysis

Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini

This book develops and illustrates a comprehensive, multi-level framework for the evaluation of industrial R & D activities and the measurement of their performances. The framework encompasses a set of hierarchical, interrelated levels at which R & D evaluation and performance measurement could be undertaken. This enlightening book focuses on the single industrial firm to study performance measurement of R & D functions, projects and individual researchers or engineers. It also addresses the R & D evaluation from the point of view of financial markets, with a focus on the relationships between R & D investments and the value of the traded firm.

The Internationalisation of Mobile Telecommunications

Strategic Challenges in a Global Market

Peter Curwen and Jason Whalley

Based upon the very latest data available, the underlying premise of the book is that mobile telecommunications is such a fast-moving sector that operators are obliged to alter their international strategies as circumstances unravel without necessarily having a long-term master plan, and hence that opportunism is a hallmark of operators’ international strategies. This state-of-the-art overview of the internationalisation of mobile telecommunications will prove essential reading for academics and practitioners with a vested interest in technology, telecommunications and strategic management.

The Silicon Dragon

High-Tech Industry in Taiwan

Terence Tsai and Bor-Shiuan Cheng

The Silicon Dragon is a systematic study of the growth of high-tech giants in the Greater China Region, depicting the success story of the microelectronics industry in Taiwan. The book examines the government policies that acted as catalysts to the growth of high-tech industries in Taiwan, along with the roles of high-tech ‘incubators’ and government-administered science parks. The authors provide case studies of high profile companies including Acer, Philips Semiconductors and Macronix International, and interviews with key decision makers to highlight the corporate strategies adopted in response to government policies and global commercial demand. Finally, insightful narratives on the birth and growth of a government-fostered strategic industry are provided, as is a synopsis of the Asian contribution to the evolution of the global microelectronics development.
