Titel: Innovating the capacity to innovate
Lessons learned from testing a prototype combining talent development and leadership innovation in a Scandinavian hospital setting
Forfatter: Ingerslev, Karen; Bjørn, Kasper; Johansen, Jørgen
Resume: This paper addresses the potential clash between the “non-failure” culture of the hospital and the “fail-fast-forward” approach of innovation by sharing and analysing narratives from a field study of innovation processes. The case is a large university hospital in Scandinavia and the health care sector in general is outlined as context of the challenges addressed by the innovation processes. The narratives fall into three overlapping categories; the product, the process and the culture of innovation. Regarding the product of innovation, we outline the lessons learned about tensions created by ambitions of radical innovation in a public sector context, challenged by the idea of small-scale experiments and the participant’s feelings of inferiority. As for the process of innovation: we share the lessons learned about how linear and non-linear thinking affects the process of innovation. Addressing the culture of innovation, we discuss the lessons learned from working with a prototype testing approach in a system characterized by an evidence-based non-failure culture. Finally we summarize the lessons learned and share concluding perspectives.
