The Handbook of Organizational and Managerial Innovation places humans, their acts, practices, processes and fantasies at the core of innovation. Bringing together some of the world’s leading thinkers, academics and professionals, both established and emerging, this multidisciplinary book provides a comprehensive picture of the vibrant and engaging field of organizational and managerial innovation.

The contributors present organizational and managerial innovation as a complex concept underpinned by varied ontological and epistemological traditions and disciplines. They reveal that it is something that exists and occurs at multiple levels of analysis, and from multiple zones of experience – the experience of managers, workers, psychologists, philosophers and economists.

This innovative and engaging Handbook will be an essential resource for researchers, practitioners and students alike with an interest in the role of innovation in organizations.
‘The editors of this volume remind us that innovation is an essential part of organizational life and is not restricted to technology. Innovation is a function of human relations and context. To my knowledge, the Handbook is unique in the breadth and depth of offering a diversity of ideas and
inspiration for studying organizational and managerial innovation (OMI). . . This volume is an excellent reference for researchers, practitioners and students.’
– James McRitchie, Navigation

‘The volume is rich in diversity of methodological, epistemological and ontological orientations and variety of approaches in organizational and managerial innovation and brings together some of the world’s leading thinkers, academics and professionals who contribute a comprehensive picture of the field. . . The Handbook remains an essential resource for all researchers, practitioners and students alike as well as a comprehensive, ambitious, welcome compilation of the patterns of organizational and managerial innovation (and development) across the globe.’
– Lucian Blaga, Management of Sustainable Development
