Abstract

Innovation in project management, including adaptable (Agile) practices that can respond quickly to opportunities and explore alternative solutions with the freedom to experiment, requires a new approach that is not constrained by conventional ideologies and the fear of failure. The parallel processes of innovation management and project management need to interact, new ways of working need to be applied where time is of the essence, and the benefits of design thinking within a diverse team environment must be realised. Innovation requires a cross-disciplinary approach using creative and entrepreneurial skills and blending financial, social, political and environmental criteria to realise value for project stakeholders. It is a new way of thinking, and a desire to measure success not just in the delivery of projects but also taking account of good design and end-user delight. Projects must be progressive and generate collective utility. The authors of this paper discuss a novel approach for embedding innovation management within project management to plan, act, learn and continuously improve our delivery performance.
