Many of the world’s leading firms are developing a new model of industrial organization based on systems integration. Rather than performing all productive tasks in-house, companies are building the capabilities to design and integrate systems, while managing networks of component and subsystem suppliers. This article illustrates how systems integration(More)
This paper provides a critical review of firm-level innovation models based on research in the industrially advanced countries (IACs) and draws implications for firms in industrialising countries such as Korea and Taiwan. The paper summarises different categories of innovation model and identifies their achievements and weaknesses, showing how a few(More)
The creative destruction of existing industries as a consequence of discontinuous technological change is a central theme in the literature on industrial innovation and technological development. Established competence-based and market-based explanations of this phenomenon argue that incumbents are seriously challenged only by ‘competence-destroying’ or(More)

and two anonymous reviewers for their very helpful comments on this and earlier drafts. I alone am responsible for the errors that remain. 2 Abstract The extent to which countries are able to innovate and progress technologically depends critically on their innovation system. This system interacts in complex and unique ways to further or hinder innovatory(More)
The NMR interactions of crystalline phases in the system Na2O-ZrO2-SiO2 have been studied by a combination of static and magic angle spinning NMR methods for the first time. A full multinuclear (17O, 23Na, 29Si and 91Zr) approach has been employed that allows the phases to be clearly identified. NMR interactions such as 29Si isotropic chemical shift(More)
A combination of X-ray and electron diffraction, electron microscopy and solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been used to elucidate the structure and the ordering of Na2ZrO3. The diffraction data confirm a monoclinic crystal structure. A sample prepared by a conventional solid-state reaction of the components is shown by both X-ray diffraction(More)
OBJECTIVES Little research has been done into the distance travelled by consumers to purchase alcohol, whether this is influenced by demographic characteristics or drinking levels of consumers, and the effect of price on purchase distance. This study aimed to explore distances drinkers were prepared to travel to purchase alcohol at on- and off-site outlets(More)
