Innovation management through the use of diversity networks

Bednar, Peter LU ; Welch, Christine and Katos, Vasilios (2008) In International Journal of Knowledge and Learning 4(4). p.357-369
Abstract
A methodology for innovation and analysis in a context of complex

problem spaces is presented, introducing the idea of a diversity network.

The methodology draws upon a framework which puts ‘complexification’ into

systemic practice. Such an application helps individual participants to outline their narratives, create and agree upon categories, and use these to classify their narratives. Clusters of narratives, reflecting innovation through diversity networks of opinion and competences, are encouraged to emerge in analytical practice. This approach can be applied to promote creativity and sharing in a knowledge management context.
