The Study of New Areas Within Employee Innovation Using Diary Methods

Unsworth, Kerrie L. & Clegg, Chris A. (2004) The Study of New Areas Within Employee Innovation Using Diary Methods. In 18th Annual Australian New Zealand Academy of Management Conference, December, Dunedin, New Zealand.

Abstract

To date, employee innovation research has been dominated by two research questions: What factors increase the novelty and usefulness of innovation outcomes?; and What factors increase the innovativeness of employees? While the answers to these questions are important, we argue that other questions remain unanswered and that innovative innovation research is needed. We discuss traditional methods of studying innovation and argue that a new method, diary studies, may be more useful at answering these neglected questions. We outline considerations involved in diary studies and then provide a case study where diary methods were successfully used to study employee innovation.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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.
