Abstract

People innovate. Business innovation is, therefore, inextricably linked to people and to the extent to which a business draws on all of their employees, at all levels, to innovate. As people undertake their daily work roles, they develop task and organisational knowledge that, with space to reflect, learn, share and experiment, can be used to identify new and better ways of working.
