The monograph presents a comprehensive and holistic approach to the study of innovativeness of enterprises and the economy in Poland. Such an approach determines its originality against the background of previous works. An interesting intertwining of theory and practice, the argumentation of great theoreticians of the subject with cases of innovative activity in Poland is an indisputable source of knowledge not only for research but also for education and substantive, and not only technical training of managers.
Excerpted from the review of
Professor Ewa Okoń-Horodyńska
