International Journal of Innovation and Learning (IJIL), Vol. 19, No. 1, 2016

Abstract: Organisational success depends on the capacity of innovative ideas to receive support within the organisation, be implemented and achieve external accomplishment. Underlying this simple process is a ground swell of factors that must align. To identify the necessary factors, this paper reviews research articles published between 2002 and 2012 on individual innovation. At various points key factors such as team, organisational, social and educational factors, among others, are identified which must be negotiated for individuals' innovative ideas to materialise. Following the review, a model of individual innovation is presented and a research agenda to enhance individual innovation is discussed.
