Leaders’ Conceptualisation of Learning and Innovation, and their Strategies of Implementation

Yu, Richard Shue-Tak (2015) Leaders’ Conceptualisation of Learning and Innovation, and their Strategies of Implementation. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University.


To be successful in a competitive environment, business organisations require the capabilities to solve authentic problems relevant to their respective business or industry. These capabilities are consolidated in policies and programmes of corporate learning and innovation. As will be developed in the thesis, learning is solving problems that other people have solved and innovating is solving problems that no other people or entities have solved. Leaders’ active role in implementing and enacting these policies and programmes is a crucial factor in the processes of learning and innovating. This research explored the knowledge and understanding of people in leadership roles in Australian organisations and their strategies to facilitate learning and innovation among employees. It aimed to discover organisational leaders’ conception of the acts of ‘to learn’ and ‘to innovate’ through a qualitative and exploratory methodology.
