The final research question of this PhD project is a product of both the original purpose and the research question formulated in the application form to the Doctoral School back in 2003. While the research question has changed several times throughout the working process, the essential purpose has remained the same, namely to contribute with new knowledge of how companies may be made more innovative. The research question has, on the other hand, been modified several times in the working process.The initial research question was formulated in the application form to the Doctoral School of Knowledge and Management at CBS and was expressed in the following way: How can a company‟s long-term strategic goals be transformed into behavioural adjustments within micro processes which promote the innovation capability? Obviously, this research question is far too imprecise with too many potential perspectives inherent in it and therefore, it needed to be considered more carefully.
