Abstract


The objective of this research is to empirically compare the management that is
most suitable for radical innovation with that needed for incremental innovation.
The relationship between the results of research and development and
management styles was surveyed using a questionnaire. Respondents included
research and development leaders in Japanese manufacturing, with special
attention given to the differences between radical innovation and incremental
innovation. Results verified, in an integrated way, the management and leadership
factors, taking into consideration the differences arising from the object under
analysis and the environmental factors.
