Abstract

Innovation is viewed as a critical source of organizational competitiveness and important for organizational survival. The most common definition of innovation views it as only the implementation aspect, excluding the idea generation and development phase, which are viewed as creativity. Critical to innovation is engaging in idea evaluation and idea selection, in order to identify the best and most creative ideas to implement. Literature relevant to engaging in this process as well as organizational factors that influence the implementation of creative ideas is reviewed.
