Abstract [en]

Employee-Driven Innovation (EDI) is a companywide approach where ideas are generated and implemented by a single employee or by the joint efforts of two or more employees who have not been deliberately assigned to carry out innovative work. This paper aims to contribute to knowledge about the underlying mechanisms necessary for building EDI capability in an organisation. Two types of organisational structures supporting EDI were identified: participation through suggesting improvements, and participation through teams. The key managerial approaches for enabling EDI are: creating motivation, empowerment and autonomy; collaboration and teamwork; open climate and communication; management support; and organisational learning.
