Waseda Innovation Laboratory (WIN-Lab) was founded in April 2018 with the goals of uncovering multilevel processes and mechanisms for innovation. While there has been abundant research on innovation at various analytical levels, we know little about the relationships among those insights. To deepen our understanding of innovation phenomena, research focusing on mutual influence over the level of analysis is required. Drawing on the multilevel approach, WIN-Lab advances innovation theories.
WIN-Lab has promoted an international research collaboration with the Stockholm School of Innovation (SSE). On May 14, to kick-off our collaboration, we held the first research workshop with members of the House of Innovation at SSE. Prof. Holmer Kok and Prof. Mark A. Conley from SSE, and Prof. Hideo Owan, Prof. Toshio Murase, and Prof. Takumi Shimizu from WIN-Lab gave research presentations. SSE and WIN-Lab will make further collaborations to advance innovation theories.
The work of “Learning from Failure” project was presented at the research conference 2019 of the Academic Association for Organization Science (AAOS) held in Komazawa University on June 2. The paper consists of the theoretical framework.
