Abstract [en]

This paper presents an investigation of how critical situations enabling and hindering the realization of a radical innovation idea in an established and large company are managed. By gaining access to rich data through interviews with key stakeholder associated to a recently launched radical innovation the study is able to bring light to why uncertainties and complexities in a radical innovation project varies over time and how the combination of different novelty dimensions is contributing. The critical situations identified are found to all relate to events or periods when people inside the organization either are or are not convinced about and motivated by the potential and feasibility of the innovation. This observation is emphasizing a need to better understand how the management of internal resistance to radical innovation can be improved. Particularly how, when and what roles, different management functions or other people in the organization play over time.
