Holst became the leader and organizer of the research laboratory. Scientists who worked under him proved the business value of industrial research for the Philips company.The National Laboratory story indicates that it was not enough for Philips to simply have a tradition of innovation -- the company also needed to create a culture and structure that permitted the coordination between people and resources that was necessary for developing innovations in an industrial context.
