Professional Associations as Important Mediators of the Innovation Process.
Newell, Sue; Swan, Jacky
Science Communication, v16 n4 p371-87 Jun 1995
Innovation depends on new ideas entering an organization and being translated into something implemented and used. A survey of one association's members is used to identify the variables that predict the level of two types of technological innovation. Results show that professional association networks are important for innovation in specific operational technologies. (Author/AEF)
