Abstract:
Understanding why organizations differ in their abilities to obtain, explore ;and exploit their employees’ ideas and knowledge is important in order to ;increase the overall innovation capacity of organizations. In this paper, we ;investigate the impact of management practices concerning employees’ general ;involvement in innovation work. The study is based on interviews with managers, ;employees, and union representatives in twenty Norwegian organizations. The ;results highlight several important factors regarding both management practice ;and cultural aspects of everyday working life. We emphasize in particular the ;important role of the middle manager (such as a foreman, section head, or shift ;boss). The nature of interaction between managers and employees is also ;significant. For instance, managers’ ability and will to share information and ;to build trust-based relations across positions and professions, as well as ;facilitating efficient knowledge exchange between employees, are of particular ;importance.;;;
