About this book

This book represents the first comprehensive investigation of the role of emotional intelligence in promoting innovation in the organizational context. Offering emerging insights into the human side of innovation. This book highlights how it has become strategically important for firm innovativeness to identify and evaluate those behavioral competencies that enable entrepreneurs and professionals to generate different types of innovation (product, process, marketing, organizational and strategic innovation). It illustrates a classification of behavioral competencies for innovation and provides empirical evidence collected through the application of the competency-based methodology to a sample of entrepreneurs and new product development teams. This book provides practical policy and managerial implications on how to develop and evaluate behavioral competencies in the higher education and organizational settings in order to foster individual innovation capacity.
