2013 (English)In: Proceedings of iced13 volume 6: design information and knowledge, The Design Society, 2013, Vol. 6 DS75-06, 199-208 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a framework and process (MINT) to support product development teams that have an ambition to improve their capability to manage both radical and incremental innovation. The driving force for the method was a clearly expressed need from teams to be able to measure and direct and change their own innovation work practice. The paper encompasses a longitudinal collaboration between academia and industry and aims to contribute to the development of a deeper understanding of how to successfully implement design research results in practice as called for by the design research community. The MINT method which is outlined in the paper has been developed and successfully adopted to the need of different teams in several companies. The learning outcome from the research project is analysed and three categories of critical factors which relates to the design, content and implementation process of the method are discussed and compared to relevant innovation and change management literature.
