Resumé

Why is it that some business proposals – no matter how well researched with users and

business developed – don’t seem to make it through the organizational jungle to become a

real product, while others do? How shall we understand the innovative practices that we

engage with our ethnographic work - in particular in a large corporation?

This workshop explores how innovation is socially shaped in organizations. Based on

our experiences with practices around innovation and collaboration, we start from three

proposition about the social shaping of innovation:

• Ideas don't thrive as text (i.e. we need to consider other media)

• Ideas need socialization (ideas are linked to people, we need to be careful

about how we support the social innovation context)

• Ideas are local (ideas spring out of a local contingency, we need to take care in

how we like them to travel).
