Abstract
Research in innovation has resulted in much applicable knowledge in terms of tools, methods and processes. However, the challenge of allowing “space”, time and competence for innovation capability development is sparsely reported. The purpose of this research is to identify how organizational and behavioral factors affect product innovation capability and its development in organizations. The research sets out to explore and elaborate on the research question: How can product innovation capability among organizations and individuals be improved by identifying and changing organizational factors? The individual and organizational factors need to be considered in relation to the product innovation. Theories of innovation capability,... (More)
Research in innovation has resulted in much applicable knowledge in terms of tools, methods and processes. However, the challenge of allowing “space”, time and competence for innovation capability development is sparsely reported. The purpose of this research is to identify how organizational and behavioral factors affect product innovation capability and its development in organizations. The research sets out to explore and elaborate on the research question: How can product innovation capability among organizations and individuals be improved by identifying and changing organizational factors? The individual and organizational factors need to be considered in relation to the product innovation. Theories of innovation capability, innovation and learning, innovation and creative climate are all used as a basis for this research. Interviews and a creative climate questionnaire have been used in five med-tech companies for empirical input. The qualitative result elicits six factors that influence the innovation capability and its development in organizations; brings out the two most important factors from the survey and elaborates a cross analyses from the qualitative and quantitative input.
