Paper to be presented at the CAS workshop on Innovation in Firms.
In evolutionary economics firms are seen as diverse. Diversity may be analysed in models
where focus is on variance rather than on averages or on representative agents. Another way of
capturing diversity is to establish taxonomies where firms are grouped according to one or more
variables. When it comes to analyse ‘the knowledge based firm’ it is natural to look for
taxonomies that refer to the knowledge base. Examples of such taxonomies are distinctions
between high, medium and low-tech firms, the Pavitt taxonomy, distinctions between firms
based on synthetic and analytic knowledge and, finally assuming that firms may belong to
creative or non-creative industries.
