Abstract and Keywords
Researchers and practitioners have recognized the importance of team innovation for organizational effectiveness. This chapter provides an overview of the factors that influence team innovation using an input–process–output structure. It identifies factors relating to the team and organizational context as inputs for various team processes that translate into innovative outputs. It further suggests that leadership acts as a contingency factor that facilitates the transition of input factors into team processes. Highlighting the often-overlooked difference between idea generation and idea implementation as part of team innovation, it discusses which input factors and processes are more likely to exert more influence over idea generation and/or idea implementation. It concludes by emphasizing the importance of implementing creative ideas for achieving innovation success.
