This edited book analyses the multi-level aspects of HRM and innovation by bringing together 27 chapters from leading researchers in the field of HRM and innovation. The first two sections of the book take an organizational-level perspective. Section 1 provides an overview by outlining some of the important ‘conditioning contingencies’ necessary for the management of innovation, such as designing organisational structures to allow opportunities for knowledge flow across and within organizational boundaries, human resource development, and work-based learning. Section 2 uncovers some of the contextual contingencies that influence whether and how innovation is seen in organizations. Section 3 deals with the challenges faced by leaders who have responsibility for enacting innovation within their organisations. It examines leadership considerations with innovation in mind. Section 4 takes a micro-level perspective, and deals with the challenge of managing individual learning in order to facilitate employee creativity and innovation.
