Innovation and dynamic networks in project-based firms (2009–2011)

Abstract:
Project-based firms in key industry sectors such as high technology, design and engineering, mining and energy are a significant but poorly understood source of innovation. This proposal will use recent advances in the dynamic analysis of networks to reveal how these firms evolve to enhance innovation in this increasingly important organizational form. Specifically, we will examine the proposition that a particular class of network called 'small world' is a leading indicator of successful innovation in project-based firms.
