Path breaking analysis of a critical feature of American R&D,
By A Customer
This review is from: Limited by Design (Hardcover)
This book demonstrates analytical prowess of the first order. With an empirical base of staggering proportions, the authors shatter the categories we commonly apply to R&D laboratories. By presenting a new, empirically based schema for thinking about the structure and behavior of R&D laboratories, the authors provide academic and policymakers, alike, with a real foundation for crafting sound science and technology policies.
The book will go down as a classic not only because of its definitive blow to the accepted policy shorthand, but also because of the elegance and rigor of their alternative view.
