Creative Tension in the Innovation Process: How to Support the Right Capabilities

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract The degree to which a firm needs creativity and discipline - the elements of creative tension to which this paper refers - depends on the speed with which the industry changes. While some degree of freedom and flexibility is essential for productive innovation teams, management is faced with the challenge of instituting control mechanisms that lead projects in the right strategic direction, and monitor firms’ progress towards their organizational and project goals. However, the wrong type of control system may constrain firms’ capabilities.
