New: Innovation and the self-reinforcing circle
The most influential academic management articles about innovation energize an accelerating, self-reinforcing circle, which focuses on creating organizational benefits while only hinting at the destructive effects and consequences. Such effects propagate through organizations/society, sometimes re-creating what was positive in one context as undesirable consequences in another. We provide a research framework that shifts the balance and attention towards sustainable organisations.
