Based on Allan Ryan’s research at the Australian Graduate School of Management some 25 years ago, A Quest for Innovation incorporates our ‘People-First’ (Innovation and Tools) Approach. That is:

  • 4 core areas for enabling high performance: people, process, ideas and collaboration. 
  • 8 Principles of Innovation for identifying priorities and performance.
  • 16 Building Blocks to develop a plan.

As well as our approach to See (insight), Think (ideas), Do (action).

Why is this resource free? Hargraves Institute was established in 2006 by 12 leading organisations who shared a vision to help Australia become more innovative through collaboration and ‘collective wisdom’. Today, we uphold their vision by turning our research, expertise and collaboration into DIY tools that benefit everyone.
