Understanding the Review Process to Achieve Innovation
Although creativity is an important element in achieving innovation, the review process from idea generation to execution is equally important. In other words, organisations often lack innovation due to the fact that great ideas do not reach fruition or unsound ideas get put forward.
Staff within the organisation are unfamiliar with the review process thus fail to envision their ideas being implemented and delivering results.
Furthermore, organisations may be rooted in their existing KPI’s resulting in their failure to empower grassroots staff with the tools and knowledge to innovate. How should organisations facilitate a better understanding of the innovation process within their staff?
Participants undertaking this research project may distinguish the differences between invention, innovation, and improvement. They can also explore why pockets of innovation occur within organisations. Another possible composite study would be to explore why Australia lags in terms of industry engagement.
