This book draws on many years of research by the author involving collaborative work with various scholars and research institutions. It enables a different perspective on frugal innovations, as it draws on streams as varied as business management, sociology, psychology, philosophy, culture and engineering. This is missing in publications on frugal innovations so far. It is based on a mixed, multi-methods research approach (literature review, bibliometrics, expert interview, focus groups, case studies and conceptual work) in a multi-national context, providing rich insights.
