About the Series

Systems Innovation refers to all aspects of developing and deploying new technology, methodology, techniques, and best practices in advancing industrial production and economic development. This entails such topics as product design and development, entrepreneurship, global trade, environmental consciousness, operations and logistics, introduction and management of technology, collaborative system design, and product commercialization. Industrial innovation suggests breaking away from the traditional approaches to industrial production. It encourages the marriage of systems science, management principles, and technology implementation. Particular focus will be the impact of modern technology on industrial development and industrialization approaches, particularly for developing economics. The series will also cover how emerging technologies and entrepreneurship are essential for economic development and society advancement.
