Time, organisations and innovation


There is continued interest among academics, practitioners and policy-makers in methods to accelerate the processes of organizational innovation. Academic studies of this complex phenomenon have succeeded in reaching a high degree of consensus on the antecedents of innovation speed, but have yet to fully elucidate the underlying mechanisms.  We have argued for a strengthening of our theoretical understanding of such speed (Ellwood, Grimshaw, & Pandza, in press), by means of rich qualitative studies of how time is experienced within organizations (e.g. Bakken, Holt, & Zundel, 2013).  I’d welcome inquiries for research exploring themes of time and organizational innovation.
