Abstract

Purpose

To measure, group, and understand the role of ideas in the workplace.

Design/methodology/approach

The study carries out a cluster analysis of what managers say is happening to ideas in their workplace.

Findings

This pilot study finds that the role of ideas, their interaction, and progression across organizations and workplaces can be identified and measured. It provides a way of identifying group mindsets and a medium for understanding and addressing orthodoxy.

Research limitations/implications

The main implication is to gain a practical understanding of the role of ideas in any group's performance. The questions about ideas are widely applicable across groups. The research was also limited by its sample size.

Practical implications

By identifying how ideas are currently addressed, the approach is available for a wide range of group situations in organizations and across disciplines. It can be used to recognize, harness and improve the contribution of disparate ideas to performance and outcomes.

Originality/value

The article's originality is in its focus on the role of ideas in organization and society. The study highlights the role of idea interaction and progression, invaluable in integrating the development of the theory and practice of leadership, organization and management.

Abstract

Ideas contribute to the achievement of high performance, excellence, and competitive advantage in management and organisation. To intervene to facilitate these favourable outcomes, managers need to be aware of how ideas are affected by mindsets they use and what is actually happening to ideas in their workplaces. This paper reports on a pilot survey among managers from diverse organisations. Respondents provide their views about what happens to ideas in their organisations, with comments about the responsiveness of colleagues. It is presumed that how managers engage with ideas in the workplace will reflect the mindsets that they bring from the theory and practice of management. These mindsets are discussed. The study suggests that these mainstream management approaches as applied in our enterprises might not be adequate, and foreshadows the need for their improvement.

Abstract

Successful ideas break through and get implemented in organisation and in society. This article proposes a Breakthrough Model as a new framework for understanding the passage of breakthrough ideas. It accommodates and moves beyond mainstream management thinking in identifying the factors and processes that contribute to ideas breaking through. Drawing on illustrative insights from the Darwinian revolution, and the literature, it suggests that organisations can make substantially better use of their existing human skills and improve performance through the management of the passage of breakthrough ideas
