The November issue of HR magazine had the cover story titled ?Cooking up Innovation?. In that article, Gary Hamel talks about ?The Future of Innovation?
?The biggest Innovation of all? Hamel says ?is Management Innovation and the challenge to HR is to help bring the same kind of management processes to innovation that other departments have brought to processes.? ?HR?s most fundamental strategic responsibility? he says ?is to build new human based capabilities that create a competitive advantage.? ?This is essential because within the next decade, predicts Hamel, ?no company is going to be able to opt out of innovation.?
The December issue of Fast Company has great articles on creativity and innovation.
