Therefore, this paper will also discuss regarding the frameworks of innovation and how did it affect up to date inventions in this generation.

Knowledge management is the process to identify and organize explicit information & knowledge, knowledge management have couple key activities such as; capturing & reusing past experience, creating & maintaining & exploiting knowledge stores and embedding knowledge in processes, products & services. From the scientific article “Innovation and the value of failure” by William Townsend, Chesbrough (2004) discussed the need to measure and manage “false negatives” in the innovation process. He discusses “false negatives” as innovation efforts that have been terminated or abandoned by an organization which later show renewed value. Townsend fortifies the solid idea on knowledge management by inspiring people that the so called “failed product” can also be useful for the organization.

For instance, sometimes companies used planned synchrony to collaborate for a certain time to benefit both parties, with this they usually align their goals together and have to coordinate schedules that both parties agreed to. There is also a method called Reactive synchrony, it concerns how a firm tries to organize their resources and time to rival competitors in the industries, this method is more flexible than planned synchrony, although there are certain complications for this such as; the transformation had to be quick and precise. Although in the real world most companies used both of the method to reap benefits from others (Hybrid synchrony) as it is most efficient and effective method to keep the firm stand strong in the industry they are
