Information and Innovation: Multidimensioanl Managerial Perspectives

Don M.M. Booker.


This paper presents a unified multidimensional model of information which includes: Shannon-Weaver communication theory, Chaitin Kolmogorov Information Complexity theory, a language based computational complexity contextual model from context free programming language theory, physical information models from 'Physics as Fisher Information: A Unification' by B. R. Frieden, and a statistical contextual model based on Diembski's intelligent design information theory. These multidemsional models are applied to issues in the management of innovation, design, and creativity, emphasizing programming and information systems management, in knowledge based organizations and industries.
