From World War II the "linear model of innovation" was adopted, with its emphasis on the supply of scientific knowledge, which states that science leads to technology and this in turn transforms the basic science Commercial applications that seek to satisfy the needs of the market; In other words, basic research leads to "invention" and then to innovation, that is, to the launch of the novelty. Escorsa Pere Castells (2005) believes that this model is not realistic (1) and on the contrary too theoretical, since the basic science does not always generate innovation to the market, but it has the virtue of clarifying concepts.
Among the opponents of the linear model are Edquist and Hommnen, (1999, pp. 63-79), and base their critique on the simplicity of the model. Similarly Tessa Goverse (2003) argues that this model does not incorporate mechanisms of reaction in the process, where there are essential defects or failures that are not taken into account and are not controlled.
This second innovation model Marquis proposed by Schmookler focuses on market demand, which states that both innovations and inventions are based on ideas that are generated from anywhere in the company and does not necessarily R & D, most of these come from customers and are collected by the commercial department. Schmookler, defines two essential requirements for innovation to be possible: technical feasibility and potential demand; From there the possibilities of the current technology are examined and…
