The drivers of innovation success: What predicts that an innovation is likely to be successful?

Research Briefing

A new study is due to be published later this year that looks at the question of what organisational factors predict innovation success. This is really important for organisations. Understanding the organisational factors for innovation success helps leaders make better evidence-based decisions and makes those responsible for organisational development, change and management able to help craft an organisation that has a significantly greater chance of success with innovation.

The research

The study, conducted by a team of researchers from the Lappeenranta University of Technology, in Finland and the department of Strategic Management and Organization at the University of Bayreuth, in Germany examined the existing research literature and observed the outcomes, strategies, decisions and actions across four organisations and interviewed 626 staff in those firms to ascertain what the drivers of innovation success are.
