Gary Hamel on Management Innovation

I have mentioned before that I think Gary Hamel is one of the leading management thinkers on innovation. Here is an interesting interview (via: brisebois blog) with him – Gary Hamel: management innovation

Management innovation is innovation in management principles and processes that ultimately changes the practice of what managers do, and how they do it. It is different from operational innovation; which is about how the work of transforming inputs into outputs actually gets done.

The management innovation lab is an experiment in itself. For the sake of simplicity, there are two hypotheses. The first is that we can invent a methodology that will allow us to be much more purposeful about management innovation, and that will allow us to dramatically accelerate the evolution of management itself.

The second hypothesis is that we can help organisations learn how to experiment with new management principles and processes in ways that won’t disrupt current success.
