The word innovation is ubiquitous in modern business and political life. Every organisation projects itself as innovative; every country strives to be innovative to compete in a world changing at a dizzying pace.

I was lucky enough to go to the launch of Inside the Innovation Matrix – Finding the hidden human dimensions a book prompted by the Australian Business Foundation . It’s a collection of 14 papers from eminent business people and academics explores the hidden human dimensions of innovation, beyond scientific discovery, entrepreneurial flair or just plain creativity.

  • Innovation can give firms a great competitive edge, but it sometimes needs to be prompted by collaboration rather than competition. How can you foster learning networks?
  • Innovation in Winning Organisations in Australia: Myths and Realities
  • How Australia can maximise the economic and other benefits of our skilled citizen diaspora
  • How Intangible Networks Can Boost the Innovation Odds
  • New Tools to Map and Manage Innovation Networks
  • How an organisation can embed innovation in its very DNA
  • The role of innovators and stabilisers
  • Facilitating unlearning

You can download the individual chapters here or the entire book Inside the Innovation Matrix (all chapters) (1 MB PDF)
