by Jacob Brix; Ole Lauridsen
International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 16, No. 4, 2014

Abstract: This study widens the current state-of-the-art for improving teamwork in practice by enhancing personal and interpersonal learning competencies. The foundation for the study is obtained by conducting eight months of action research at five Lithuanian SMEs who followed Brix and Jakobsen's (2013) radical innovation method the 'Creative Idea Solution (CIS) framework'. As part of the authors' intervention, Lauridsen's (2012) updated version of the building excellence (BE) learning styles model (Dunn and Rundle, 2007) was implemented in the five innovation teams. The results represent important implications for organisations and teams in practice as well as they represent new insight to the innovation management literature and organisation science. Here, focus on improving organisational practice is starting to sprout and a scientific contribution is no longer the only imperative (Huber, 2011).
