Abstract: Innovation drives economic growth. At the level of countries, the national innovation system has a strong influence on the success of innovative activities within the region. However, it is often assumed that these systems evolve through policy innovation, in a top-down manner. This paper presents an exploratory case study of the introduction of a Lean LaunchPad program in Australia. It started as a small pilot then quickly grew to become a national program. The details of this case give insight into another way that innovation systems evolve: through an evolutionary process of variation, selection and replication.
