How team learning behaviours predict innovation capability

Research Briefing

Keywords: Learning, team learning, team learning behaviours, innovation, innovation behaviours

It has become increasingly apparent, both to many organisations and to the business research community in general, that innovation and the ability to change and pivot rapidly is not only a major source of competitive advantage but also, these days, the primary method for reducing the chance of obsolescence.

As a result, and unsurprisingly, a wide range of recent studies have found that innovative work behaviours by employees and the organisation in general is or should be a core capability for most organisations.

A number of recent studiesi have found that team learning behaviours, such as the extent to which a team is engaged in sharing, gathering and pooling knowledge, as well as systematically thinking about how to explore, generate and realise ideas, are vital to team performance and dealing with change.

A new (2019) study looked specifically at the connections between team learning behaviours and innovation behaviours to see what other team learning behaviour factors are involved in producing innovation behaviours.

This research briefing is essential reading for anyone engaged in managing or developing teams or concerned with increasing innovation capability.
