West, Michael and Hirst, Giles and Richter, Andreas W and Shipton, Helen (2004) Twelve steps to heaven:Successfully managing change through developing innovative teams. European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, 13 (2). pp. 269-299. ISSN 1359-432XFull text not available from this repository.
In this article we propose that work teams implement many of the innovative changes required to enable organizations to respond appropriately to the external environment. We describe how, using an input?–?process?–?output model, we can identify the key elements necessary for developing team innovation. We propose that it is the implementation of ideas rather than their development that is crucial for enabling organizational change. Drawing on theory and relevant research, 12 steps to developing innovative teams are described covering key aspects of the team task, team composition, organizational context, and team processes.
