This study draws on the innovation practices of 18 firms in the Canadian electronic and telecommunication (E and T) industry to delineate a blueprint for the complete innovation process. The feedback mechanisms that move the product successfully from conception to commercial launch are given special attention. During the study, both the best practices and the shortfalls of these firms with regard to implementing the innovation process emerged. Key issues examined here are the determination of the product's strategic role, the kinds of audits performed at each interface, the role of quality assurance during the innovation process, and the adoption of new management concepts
