Thailand as a case study. It argues that the specific nature of the NIS and related problems in developing countries, which are less successful in terms of technological catching up are different both from developed countries and ‘learning intensive’ developing countries.

Appropriate technology is a movement (and its manifestations) encompassing technological choice and application that is small-scale, affordable by locals, decentralized, labor-intensive, energy-efficient, environmentally sound, and locally autonomous.

Almost all the empirical works focus on the developed countries. To remedy this shortcoming, this study use a panel comprising 48 developing countries, selected according to the availability of data over a period of 56 years. In this study, we explore seven in-depth cases of high-technology acquisitions and develop an empirically grounded model of technology and capability transfer during acquisition implementation. We assess how the nature of the acquired firms' knowledge-based resources, as well as multiple dimensions of acquisition implementation, have both independent and Cited by: Our study contributes to the understanding of firm-level dynamics of innovation and its consequences on financial performance by suggesting a new way of operationalising innovation capability of firms and providing an analysis of two of the most successful Asian emerging countries, namely Korea and China.

This paper presents a critical review of the global value chain (GVC) literature in light of the “technological capabilities” approach to innovation in less-developed countries (LDCs).

Participation in GVC is beneficial for firms in LDCs, which are bound to source technology internationally. However, the issues of learning and technological efforts at the. Technological capability and innovativeness certainly help them to catch up with the developed countries.

Keeping this in mind, the concept of TC-index has been developed. TC-index is an integrated innovation index whose score ranges from negative to zero and to positive values. The range depends on the way the index is by: Technological Advancement in Developed and Developing Countries: Discoveries in Global Information Management [Gordon Hunter, Felix Tan] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Description. Advancements in technological innovation and adoption impact modern organizations on an increasingly global level. There is now a continual need for research on recent developments and future considerations that promote the successful management of knowledge, ideas, and practice among developed and developing nations.

The economic and social development of the poor countries is now no longer conditional upon the generation of new scientific knowledge, as was the case until the middle of the last century.
