The innovation theory (briefly, IT), which has been developed in the ISCOM project and which is presented in this book (Chapters 9 and 10), is based on the analysis of different case studies, spanning different time periods and different kinds of products, from the introduction of printing in the Renaissance, to key new technologies introduced in the 19th and 20th centuries, up to present-day ongoing innovation efforts.
