Management innovation : genealogy, challenges and viewpoints

This article proposes a reflection on genealogy, the challenges and opportunities of the managerial innovation. In a first point we will show in detail the genesis of the managerial innovation, origins until the 1990s arguing that administrative and organizational innovation are the predecessors of this concept. In a second point, the article puts forward renewal of the managerial innovation in the 2000s under the impulse of Hamel, Mol and Birkinshaw, within the Managerial Innovation Lab at London Business School. A third development is devoted to the identification of the major managerial innovations in history. A definition of innovation management is given in the fourth point. Article leads, finally, on the statement of the main avenues of research in the field.
