Chapter

Zusammenfassung

In Zeiten turbulenter, durch die globale Rezession ernsthaft angeschlagener Märkte ist es für Organisationen bedeutsam, zur Erlangung bzw. Aufrechterhaltung ihrer Wettbewerbsfähigkeit kontinuierlich zu innovieren. Ein Weg, organisationale Innovation zu steigern, besteht in der Rekrutierung und Auswahl innovativer Talente. Gemeint sind organisationsexterne Personen, die in ihren neuen Arbeitsrollen und Arbeitskontexten zukünftig kreativ und innovativ sein werden. Dieses Kapitel beschreibt und integriert vorliegende Forschungsergebnisse zu unterschiedlichen Variablen, die individuelle, innovative Leistung am Arbeitsplatz vorherzusagen vermögen. Auf diesen Überblick aufbauend geben wir Handlungsempfehlungen für die zukünftige Forschung und Praxis. Insbesondere werden wir der Frage Beachtung schenken, welche spezifischen Personalauswahlverfahren zur Diagnose des innovativen Potenzials von Personen besonders geeignet sind.
