Resource-constrained Innovation: When less is more
Why do some innovation projects deliver impressive results under constrained resource conditions, while other much more well-endowed projects show disappointing performance? This talk addresses this question and comes in two parts. First, it provides a brief overview of a 10+ year research program on resource-constrained innovation. Second, it reports on one specific study situated in the highly constrained environments of emerging economies and how this affects individuals’ underlying cognitive styles – and hence their creative approaches for innovation under constraints.
