International Journal of Quality Engineering and Technology (IJQET), Vol. 7, No. 4, 2019

Abstract: Innovation is presently the hottest topic in business, industry, academia, and the government. In response to a prevailing priority of business and industry to drive innovation, this paper introduces a research study on the development of a theory of innovation from the perspective of how people work and collaborate in the pursuit of innovation. The focus of innovation ranges from the acquisition of technology products, services, operational processes as well as workforce talent. This justifies using a systems framework for the methodology development in this paper. The umbrella theory of innovation developed in this paper is transmittable to innovation pursuits in diverse operational environments in business, industry, government, the military, and academia.
