When regarding innovation practice from both a research and a practitioner’s perspective the temptation can be to focus on formal outcomes: technology, concepts, products and services. As a result continuous innovation can be considered a means to streamline the processes necessary to achieve those outcomes. However this understanding of innovation can divert attention from how things and operations are actually achieved. Value may be lost in an innovation process, because the resources of those involved, how they get things done on a day to day basis, are not identified as such. By adopting a perspective that is based on complex processes of relating we argue that innovation can be otherwise seen as the emergence of new meaning that arises from the ongoing gesture and response interactions between those involved through the knowing, doing, making and relating of participatory inquiry and that the practice of doing innovation is inherently learning driven.
