Overcoming Barriers to Innovation by Facilitating Unlearning
Becker, Karen L. & Hyland, Paul (2008) Overcoming Barriers to Innovation by Facilitating Unlearning. In Inside the Innovation Matrix. Australian Business Foundation, North Sydney, Australia, pp. 178-195.
The literature on innovation tends to concentrate on tapping into new ways to do things. Yet if people resist change, innovation is unlikely to flourish. And to accept change, they have to unlearn their set ways of doing things. So unlearning is a critical part of the innovation process. This chapter presents a model to help managers to engender and support unlearning at both the individual and group level. It draws on case studies and empirical research to highlight key lessons for businesses and managers on how to manage both innovation and unlearning.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
