The Innovation Process

I have been doing a bit of research over the last week to see what academics and researchers think the innovation process is.

There is lots of stuff on this relating to the private sector but relatively little that relates to the delivery of public services. But I have found two which might be helpful:

And this one from the Cabinet Office report by Geoff Mulgan and David Albury:

A further adaptation of the Mulgan and Albury model

This comes from the Hartley report available here:

Innovation process models


I think the second (Mulgan & Avery) model - the cyclic model is far more in keepign with everything I've ever been taught about design. Linear models are generally not workable. Also, it fist nicely with the nice circular model we are using for the core process model.
