Technological innovation is quite a diffused and variegated phenomenon in market services. Engineering, technical consultancy, computing and software emerge as the most innovative sectors. Innovation expenditure per employee in these industries is rather close to the manufacturing average. Ettlie & Bridges () suggest that technology policy reflects the innovative attitude of an organization and its commitment to innovation. Although technology can play a vital role in any organization’s innovation process, but too much technology might even stifle innovation by standardizing the existing workflows and processes. Technological Innovation: Concept, Process, Typology and Implications in the Economy Mihaela DIACONU “Petre Andrei” University of Iaşi [email protected] Abstract. Growing interest worldwide to boost innovation in business sector activities, especially the technology, is intended to maintain or increase national economic competitiveness. Thus technological innovation is a part of the total innovation discipline. It focuses specifically on technology and how to embody it successfully in products, services and processes. Technology as a body of knowledge might thus be seen as a building block for technological innovation, serving as comerstone to research, design.
