    ‘Announced split of Philips is right move'
    Companies that want to have inventive impact need to focus on a limited number of products, especially if the products concerned recombine different technologies, for example, digital cameras. “Ideally, you use 10-30% or more of your R&D time for a multiple-technology product,” Tilburg Professor Xavier Martin states on the basis of research he conducted with three fellow researchers from Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. “In this light, the announced split of Philips is the right move. It will bring the necessary R&D focus, enabling Healthtech to really catch up to its competitors and Lighting to continue the transformation of its business model.” Read more

The fear to lose power stimulates saving behavior. This is shown by research conducted by Anne-Kathrin Klesse of Tilburg University, carried out in cooperation with Emily Garbinsky and Jennifer Aaker of Stanford Graduate School of Business.
