Understanding innovation associated with information and communication technology

In an increasingly computerized world, information and communications technologies (ICT) are rewriting the rules of competition and changing the very nature of organizations. Firms need to adapt continually as new markets open up, and close down, with very short notice.

These data reveal an interesting paradox.
