Personally I apply a few innovation and change management concepts in my work:
- IMA’s Accelerating Change Methodology (AIM);
- James Carlopio‘s change management model (see Changing Gears: The Strategic Implementation of Technology), which has origins in Rogers‘ innovation theory (see Diffusion of Innovations if you aren’t familiar with this fantastic book); and
- Nambisan W, Agarwal R & Tanniru M, 1999, ‘Organizational mechanisms for enhancing user innovation in information technology‘, MIS Quarterly, vol. 23, no. 3, pp. 365-395.
Incidentally (and this is probably why it was top of mind) I’m planning on attending a 2 day Accelerating Change Methodology introduction program (it will be a refresher for me and a chance to hear about the change issues being faced by other organisations) in Sydney on the 16-17 September 2009. You can find out more about the course on the AIM site.
