This book addresses workplace innovation at an organizational level which is couched within developed and developing countries. It includes six major sections: workplace innovation in contexts, workplace innovation determinants, workplace innovation as a process, workplace innovation as an outcome, workplace innovation and transformations and finally, workplace innovation ecosystems.

Innovation is a phenomenon which embraces complex causal relationships while also reflecting a basic sequential evolution process. Thus, the handbook chapters are based on the foundation of an “organizational innovation framework” which is designed as a sequential process. This framework focuses on two major areas which reflect the sequential view of innovation steeped in the determinants of innovation and innovation dimensions (process and outcome elements). The innovation determinants include group level, business process level and managerial level variables underpinned by Upper echelon theory, Process theory and Resource-based view theory. Innovation dimensions are formed by perspectives of innovation as a process and innovation as an outcome
