NJIT professor authors technology text about innovative management

September 08, 2008

NJIT Associate Professor Robert S. Friedman is first author of a reference guide to the theory and research supporting the field of technology and innovation management. Principle Concepts of Technology and Innovation Management: Critical Research Models, published late last month by IGI Publishing, was co-authored by Desiree M. Roberts, University of New York-Empire State College and Jonathan D. Linton, University of Ottawa, Canada.

"The broad, interdisciplinary field of technology and innovation management contains emergent boundaries as well as developing frameworks and theories," said Friedman. "Due to the dynamic nature of the field, familiarity with the scope of literature is important to practitioners, researchers, and scholars."

The text offers a critical, scholarly analysis of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles that have had the greatest impact on the multi-disciplinary field of technology and innovation management. The authors have identified and analyzed the field's most important works, creating a one-of-a-kind book for scholars and field practitioners.

Friedman, associate professor of humanities and information technology, directs NJIT's science, technology and society program. His research examines science and culture, socio-technical systems design, and technology's role in education.

Friedman holds advanced degrees in the humanities and information systems, has published books and peer-reviewed articles concerning information and communication technologies, technologies in education, as well as the history of science and technology in 19th-century America. Friedman serves as editor-in-chief of the ACM's Special Interest Group for Information Technology Education's Peer-Reviewed SIGITE Newsletter, and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on socio-technical systems in their cultural contexts.
