Developing a learning process framework for innovation management.

Brown, Christopher J. and Frame, Philip (2007) Developing a learning process framework for innovation management. International journal of the business environment., 1 (4) . pp. 442-461. ISSN 1740-0589 [Article] (doi:10.1504/IJBE.2007.014601)


This research paper explores the value of developing a learning
process framework for groups’ sensemaking of innovative activities. The
authors provide an initial grounding on the creation of a group learning process
framework, by presenting academic references to organisational learning
frameworks that were used to identify themes and their interrelationship.
Arguments are presented to support the authors’ case approach to studying
group learning, and the situational uniqueness of innovation management
problems and issues within a Small- to Medium-sized Enterprise (SME)
context. Research findings from a longitudinal study of an SME manufacturing
organisation are used to support the continual research and to provide evidence
regarding the importance of group sensemaking in innovation management.
Finally, the contributions to academic knowledge are presented, and considered
against the value this process had for the participating organisation.
Suggestions are made regarding future research opportunities, and the potential
value of this process in other SMEs.
