New Paradigm of Innovation Management
based on Synergetic and Multifractal

The new paradigm of innovation management is based on the exploration, analysis and modeling
the features and states (such as non-equilibrium, instable, nonstationary) of innovative
technological and socio-economic system as well as concomitant transient processes taking into
account their development in time. Among the features of the system and concomitant innovation
and investment processes which were explored, it is possible to notice such features as openness,
irreversibility, nondifferentiability, long term feedbacks, discontinuity, complexity, ability to self-
organization, self-similarity, nonlinear nature, etc.
Until a profound understanding the features and states of the complex system and transient
processes is achieved, and until they can be reliably modeled, there is clearly no hope of
effectively controlling it, except of course through empiricism.
For increasing the efficiency of innovation management in technologies and society we
investigate the innovation processes from point of view of synergetics. We consider the
innovation in the complex socio-economic system as open, non-equilibrium, dissipative, active
system, capable for self-organization. For analysis of evolution, associated with the
technological innovations, we present a synergetic model that links the dynamics of
informational entropy with the self-organization process in the system. We analyze the local
element's behavior in different modes of being (the old, transient and new). Formulas for dynamics of the entropy flow and its rate are obtained with respect to innovation process and
investment flow in the system.
It is shown that an open innovative system responds to a strong change of being conditions by
steep growth of the entropy flow up to a maximum value at the critical point. The self-
organization process is destruction of the dissipative structures at the previous hierarchical
level, exhausting its possibilities, and emergence of new more complicated and more advanced
dissipative structures, corresponding to the changed being conditions. A system comes back to a
steady state due to inflow of the information from the outside or redistribution of the
informational entropy between the hierarchical levels of the system.
Obtained mathematical expressions make it possible to predict the moment when the critical
point (that is stochastic analogue of bifurcation point) will be reached. That is the moment of
crisis, in other words the moment of maximum uncertainty and instability in the complex system
when small fluctuations become amplified up to a macroscopic scale. In such a system the new

attractors of technological and socio-economic development can emerge spontaneously. Some
typical trajectories of transition to attractors of technological development were selected. The
bifurcation point may drive the system into a completely new state and thus become the driving
force of the systems development. The transition to a new level of development goes from the disorder to the order, through the phenomenon of instability in points of bifurcation.
The bifurcation moments functional dependence of the distribution function for stochastic process of external influences on system is revealed. By means of changing the parameters of
input flows from external sources into the system (for example, investment and information
flows), we have possibility to effect the moment when the bifurcation point will be reached.
We can try to influence on system before and at the bifurcation point. We cannot predict, which
trajectory the innovative system will go after the bifurcation point. But we can try to create
optimum conditions for successful passage through the bifurcation point in a desirable
direction, and also to take appropriate measures to direct innovative system on a favorable
way of development.
Self-organization process in complex system results in self-affine sequence of meaningful events,
associated with innovations. We do not know whether some temporal pattern is hidden in an
apparently disordered set of the innovation events. The multifractal theory is a good basis for
revealing such an order and for describing a flow of the multiscale events in the course of time.
The multifractal approach provides a deeper understanding the nature of the innovative event
flow and evidence for the existence of a multiplicative process hidden in a temporal pattern of
the innovation event sequence. In order to verify the fractality of data sets a wavelet analysis was
carried out. We used the continuous wavelet transform for revealing the intrinsic temporal
structure of the datasets about innovation processes.
Deeper insight into process of innovations, their prediction and management is to be gained by
using the synergetical and multifractal approaches to the self-organization processes in the
complex innovative socio-economic systems.
RaulSticky NoteThis is an interesting abstract; it links entropy and negantropy to dynamic systems and the edge of chaos. The attractors for the system after the crisis can be influenced and therefore move in the direction of a better future
