Creating High-performing Innovation Teams

Creating High-performing Innovation Teams


This research suggests a conceptual process of how to create high-performing innovation teams to meet the market’s need of faster ways of conducting innovation work. The CIT-process (Creating high-performing Innovation Teams) is a five-step-process systematically developed to meet organizational-, team-, and individual perspectives. On a holistic level, this research contributes to prior research by bringing research on innovation teams and high-performing teams together to become a pre-stage to established group dynamic processes and innovation processes. Practical implications and future research are suggested.
