    Creating High-performing Innovation Teams2017In: Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 2183 - 0606, Vol. 5, no 4, p. 23-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research suggests a conceptual process of how to create highperforming

    innovation teams to meet the market’s need of faster ways of

    conducting innovation work. The CIT-process (Creating high-performing

    Innovation Teams) is a five-step-process systematically developed to meet

    organizational-, team-, and individual perspectives. On a holistic level, this

    research contributes to prior research by bringing research on innovation teams

    and high-performing teams together to become a pre-stage to established group

    dynamic processes and innovation processes. Practical implications and future

    research are suggested.

    How Understanding of Agile Innovation Work Affects Innovation Teams2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     This research aims to explore how the understanding of agile innovation work methodologies affect innovation teams and the progress of innovation projects. In a long-term research, three innovation teams were studied through questionnaires, interviews, audio-recorded interviews and rich notes from. The data was analysed using group development theories and knowledge taxonomy to determine the relation of the teams' estimated knowledge and their performance in relation to the teams’ group development status. The results indicate that innovation teams that are unfamiliar with agile innovation work tend to not seek collaboration due to uncertainty, which results in slow progress. When an innovation team’s surrounding organisation is unfamiliar with agile innovation methodologies it tends to not offer their support until the innovation team can prove progress, also slowing the progress down. The opposite is noticed when innovation teams and the organisation understands how to apply agile innovation work methodologies, collaboration occurs easily, resulting in positive progress. Further research is suggested.

    Innovation Enablers for Innovation Teams - A Review2017In: Journal of Innovation Management, E-ISSN 2183-0606, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 75-121Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This review consolidates research on innovation enablers for

    innovation teams, defined within this research as factors that enable a crossfunctional

    team within an organization to conduct innovation work, to provide a

    deeper understanding of what factors enable innovation teams to conduct

    innovation work, which means that this research involves three areas to provide

    a holistic picture: the organizational context, the team itself, and the individuals

    within the innovation team. A systematic database search was conducted in

    which 208 relevant articles were identified and analyzed thematically way.

    Twenty innovation enablers related to innovation teams were identified:

    awareness, capabilities, climate, collaboration, culture, dedication, economy,

    education, empowerment, entre- / intrapreneurship, human resources,

    incentives, knowledge, knowledge management, management, mind-set, need,

    processes, strategy, and time. This review contributes to prior research a deeper

    understanding of what key factors enable innovative work for innovation teams.

    Suggestions of both academic and practical use for the identified innovation

    enablers are included in this review, and direction for future research is

    suggested.

    Prisoner's dilemma as a workshop tool?2018In: CEUR Workshop Proceedings / [ed] Koivisto J.,Hamari J.,Hamari J., CEUR-WS , 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Product lifecycles are shorter than ever and agile innovation processes and teams are being developed to meet challenging product lifecycle deadlines. Teaching how to create innovation teams is however shown to be both complex and time consuming, which is not optimal in a time where the business environment demands faster pace when innovating. This research has explored the potential of using Prisoner's dilemma as a workshop tool to stimulate learning and collaboration, which is the core of innovation team’s work, to be further developed to educational tools if being successful. The workshop setting was based on the participating organisations' individual and concrete ideas to be developed, where game elements were designed as game mechanisms. Management from six organisations participated in the research, three of the organisations conducted a workshop designed as a modified Prisoner's dilemma, and the other three organisations participated in a non-gamified workshop based on the same content as the gamified one. Empirical data were collected through statement-based questionnaires, rich field notes, and observations from the video-recorded workshops. The findings indicate that Prisoner's dilemma may be used as a workshop tool for educational purposes. However, significant findings indicate that collaboration felt somewhat mandatory and learning was not optimized due to the dilemma. The research' limitations are discussed and further research is suggested.

    The innovation facilitator: characteristics and importance for innovation teams2018In: Journal of Innovation Management, E-ISSN 2183-0606, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 12-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research develops the understanding of the innovation facilitator’s (facilitator) role in terms of inexperienced innovation teams in an industrial context. Qualitative data was collected from three X-functional innovation teams’ members and their sponsor to identify the requirements for a facilitator. Forty characteristics were identified and charted in an innovation process. Significant findings, contributing to prior research, are that the facilitator’s presence and involvement in the innovation teams was crucial in the pre-phase and first phase of the innovation process due to the very high complexity; in these phases, personal characteristics as well as skills in, for example, facilitating, teaching, coaching, and group dynamics were central. The importance of the pre-phase was unexpected, resulting in an extended innovation process, during which an initial preparation phase has been added to the traditional innovation process. This knowledge is applicable, for example, when creating and educating new innovation teams within an organization. Future research is suggested.

    Key factors for STPs facilitating the establishment of an innovation-advising organization network to support SMEs in developing Industry 4.0 products/services2019In: The 4th Industrial Revolution: areas of innovation and science parks as key boosters for a successful transition, September 24-27, Nantes, France, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the role of science and technology parks (STPs) as facilitators in the creation of an innovation-advising organization network (IAON) within the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech). The background to this study is that more and more products using Industry 4.0 technology, i.e., robotics, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things products, are being developed for the health-tech sector, leading to safer and more secure and cost-effective healthcare and social welfare. The challenge, however, as identified by an STP, is that the innovation-advising organizations are not collaborating efficiently, which results in scattered advise to the small and medium-sized enterprise/startups (SME) and an insufficient understanding of each other’s work when advising the same SME. In this study, the STP, successfully, initiated and facilitated the work to develop an IAON. Similar initiatives are suggested. Because challenges and success factors were identified, further studies are also recommended.

    STPs’ role as facilitators when innovation-advising organizations develop a common quality-assured innovation advising process2019In: The 4th Industrial Revolution: areas of innovation and science parks as key boosters for a successful transition, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores science and technology parks’ (STP) role as facilitators when an innovation advising organization network (IAON) within the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech) develops a quality-assured innovation advising process (QAIP). The background is that more and more products using Industry 4.0 technology are being developed for the health-tech sector. The challenge, however, as recognized by an STP, is that the IAON’s members use individual innovation advise processes, which results in inaccurate advice to the SME and insufficient collaboration between the advising organizations when advising the same SME. In this study, one STP initiated and facilitated the work to develop a QAIP, which was developed stepwise through a series of workshops in an iterative process. This study indicates that STPs may play an active part in supporting IAONs developing specialized innovation processes for certain business and technology areas, although further studies are suggested.

    How STPs can support the implementation of Industry 4.0-products in the health-tech sector2019In: The 4th Industrial Revolution: areas of innovation and science parks as key boosters for a successful transition, 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores what role science and technology parks (STP) can play when aiming to increase knowledge regarding the implementation of products for the health, social welfare, and medical technology sector (health-tech), including Industry 4.0 technology-based products (products), on a national level in Sweden. Such products, have problems reaching the market due to increased complexity from a purchase perspective. In this study, an STP developed a guideline on implementation-advice based on user-needs, literature studies, and focus groups. The guideline was presented at a seminar, where representatives from all regions in Sweden attended. The STP initiated the project, developed the guideline, and disseminated it successfully at a national level. The guideline was evaluated six months after the seminar, indicating that it created value in practice. This indicates that STPs could take an active role supporting products in the health-tech sector. New seminars are planned, and further studies are suggested.

    Problems when creating inter-organisational innovation teams2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research aims to gain knowledge on how inter-organisational collaborative innovation and research projects can be initiated through a systematic workshop series. A series of workshops was planned and executed by an intermediator organisation. Sixteen participants representing academia, industry, and funding institutions were invited with the goal of initiating collaborative innovation or research projects. Data were collected through observations, statement-based questionnaires, and interviews. At the end of the workshop series, no projects were initiated. The problems were identified as the intermediator’s lack of knowledge in selecting and preparing participants for this setting, but also the participants’ lack of knowledge regarding innovation work and collaboration on an inter-organisational basis. Further research is suggested.

    Problems when creating innovation teams2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores problems occurring when practitioners use a research-based methodology regarding how to create high-performing innovation teams, namely the CIT-process, which has not been used by practitioners before. The CIT-process is recommended to be used prior to the ideation phase, which otherwise is considered to be the first phase in the innovation process. The CIT-process is a five-step process in which the innovation project kick-off is the final step. Prior steps refer to management commitment and identification and to the preparation of a convener and team members. A consultancy firm was educated and evaluated before organisations were involved, who brought real innovation projects to work on. Three innovation teams were created. Data were collected through observations at team meetings and interviews. Any problems were mainly caused by management that underestimated the value of preparation in innovation work. Scepticism towards the newly developed CIT-process and the practitioners' inexperience with the CIT-process were also addressed as reasons. The need for educational tools was highlighted. Further research is suggested.
