Enterprise innovation planning with social software


(Download – at Viewer, change View)

Enterprise Innovation Planning (EIP) is proposed to manage discontinuous or breakthrough innovations. In this paper we make use an analytical and interdisciplinary  model of discontinuous learning to manage novelty. Novelty Action (NA) refers to the necessity of acting, in general, to learn the inherently unknown. With our model five NA-processes are involved, where one is just a mediator. For innovation we  accordantly propose four management systems, each relates to a specific managerial challenge. The mediating process will connect all the management systems so that they  can simultaneously build the innovation. This way each management system provides leverage or breakdown to the innovative learning process. The learning path for discontinuous innovation is iterative, but alternating between two types of learning. A complexity capabilities framework is suggested and a social software shell should facilitate its use. The IT-alignment will itself be a managerial challenge, which dominate the ongoing research agenda.
