Innovation Marketing – Balancing Internal and External Stakeholders Interest for the Management of Innovation



Innovation and marketing are getting increasingly interrelated. On one hand, innovative ideas need to reach the marketplace, thus marketing strategies, concepts and tools – such as the continuous development of new products and services – have become vital for their success. On the other hand, marketing management has always been influenced by innovation as illustrated recently by the way social media and Internet have revolutionized the traditional marketing-mix.

Consequently the linkages between innovation and marketing research need to be much stronger as companies have to convince internal and external stakeholders to achieve successful innovation strategies.

This edited volume brings together academics from both innovation and marketing fields to explore the additional value for companies that can be generated with the innovations in marketing and the marketing of innovations. State-of-the-art research from different perspectives will suit the needs of professionals and researchers alike.

Hence, the aims of this book are:

  • Bringing together current management research on innovation and marketing
  • Establishing of crucial linkages between both fields
  • Concentrating on managing expectations of both external and internal stakeholders
