Innovation Dynamics and Organizational Ecologies

  • Charles Ehin


In Chap. 3, we explored the major factors of the Triad (social capital, evolved predispositions, and tacit knowledge), and the interplay based on the principles of self-organization or circular causality. In this chapter, we’ll look at three related features to the overall framework, namely innovation at the individual, dyad, and organizational or network levels.
