Abstract [en]

The objective of present paper is to describe the motivations that underlie the choices made by inventors in the development of their technologies. These classifications can help managers of innovation programs direct sparse resources to inventors with the greatest probability of commercial success. The categorisation of motivation to go from idea to innovation and commercialisation of new technologies is presented for inventors for the small business in rural area of Sweden. The main results showed least eight different inventor motivations.

Abstract [en]

Present thesis is to deepen the current knowledge about the concept and development of ideas of innovators and the potential small businesses in rural areas has to adopt innovation and new technology. The thesis is limited tostudying the process itself and the progression from concept and development of ideas for invention and innovation to market and customer. The research questions include: What motivates an inventor to innovate? Howto practice innovation in small companies? How are innovators approach toproblem solving? What opportunities exist for small businesses in rural areas toadopt innovations and new technologies? The thesis also discusses on the one hand innovators approaches to motivationand attitude and on the other hand, how ideas are selected and then developed inthe process and progression in the author via the invention to market andcustomer innovation. In the present thesis has been both quantitative andqualitative approach, based on behavioural research.Important conclusions from this thesis is: that the innovation process should bedeleted and recorded by the (basic) idea and author; innovator must remain in thedevelopment of ideas with complementary and alternative ideas, innovationprocess, the progression from idea to innovation should be based on a “bottom up” perspective, where the patent law “previous user rights” supports innovatorsinvolvement in the process and progression

Abstract [sv]

Avhandlingens övergripande syfte är att fördjupa aktuella kunskaper om idéoch idéutveckling hos idégivare och vilka möjligheter småföretagen i glesbygdenhar för att ta till sig innovationer och ny teknik. Avhandlingen avgränsar sig till attstudera själva processen och progressionen från idé och idéutveckling tilluppfinning och innovation för marknad och kund.Forskningsfrågorna omfattar: Vad motiverar en uppfinnare till innovation? Hurpraktiserar man innovation i småföretag? Hur är innovatörers förhållningssätt tillproblemlösning? Vilka möjligheter har småföretag i glesbygden att ta till siginnovationer och ny teknik?Avhandlingen problematiserar å ena sidan idégivarens ansatser till motivationrespektive attityd och å andra sidan hur idéer väljs ut och sedan utvecklas i processoch progression hos upphovsmannen via uppfinning till marknadens och kundensinnovation. I föreliggande avhandling har valts både kvantitativt och kvalitativtangreppssätt, med utgångspunkt från beteendevetenskaplig forskning.Viktiga slutsatser utifrån avhandlingen är: att innovationsprocessen bör utgåoch registreras utifrån (grund‐)idén och upphovsmannen; idégivaren skall finnaskvar i idéutvecklingen med kompletterande och alternativa idéer;innovationsprocessens progression från idé till innovation skall utgå ifrån ett”bottom‐up” perspektiv, där patentlagens föranvändarrätt ger stöd för idégivarensmedverkan i processen och progressionen.
