A CASE STUDY VALIDATION OF THE APPLICATION OF A GENERALISED EQUATION OF INNOVATION IN COMPLEX ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS

Pravir Malik, Leon Pretorius

Abstract


This article leverages a mathematical model of innovation for complex adaptive systems (CAS) to explore, ex post facto, organisational innovation investigations conducted by the first author at Stanford University Medical Center. Tapping into the meta-level and more varied sources of innovation, as illustrated by a generalised equation of innovation, requires that habitual patterns along the physical, vital, mental, and integral dimensions be overcome. The experimental work used frameworks and software consistent with the generalised equation of innovation in CAS to assist in overcoming such patterns at the personal, team, and departmental levels, thereby allowing deeper sources of innovation to come into being.
