Employee innovation: The roles of idea generation and idea implementation

Unsworth, Kerrie L., Brown, Hilary, & McGuire, Lauren (2000) Employee innovation: The roles of idea generation and idea implementation. In the Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, 14-17 April, New Orleans.


This study tested the hypothesis that motivation, job competence and creative personality indirectly influenced innovation via idea generation. Results showed that the effects of creative personality and motivation on innovation were, indeed, mediated. It is proposed that innovation is not a unitary construct, but one that is composed of at least two stages.

Citation counts are 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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
