Abstract

In this paper we present the development and application of an intervention framework to initiate focus on Employee-Driven Innovation. EDI has the potential to improve product innovation by involving employees. We examine how the intervention framework can be used to facilitate EDI initiatives between R&D and manufacturing in a case-company. The framework consists of a diagnosis and three workshops and stages the intervention by a) creating common perception of current work practices, b) unfreezing roles and communication and c) creating new future EDI practices.

Keywords: employee-driven innovation, intervention framework, participatory design, design workshops
