Why are growing cities more innovative than growing companies?

Wolfgang WoppererEinen feinen DenkanStoos hat uns gestern Wolfgang Wopperer verpasst. Rund um die Frage, wie Innovation oder auch Entwicklung im weitesten Sinne entsteht und was dafür notwendig ist, wurden wir durch Parallelen aus Tierreich & Stadtentwicklung an die Fakten über die großen Unternehmen herangeführt. Je größer ein Unternehmen, desto weniger innovativer sei es.
