Seminar - Innovation Resistance: Moving Beyond Dominant Framings

Innovation is often viewed in a pro-innovation, pro-firm, manner. Connected to this perception of innovation is a view of human and non-human resistance as a temporary unwanted response that will eventually be overcome. This study challenges these assumptions and explores the manifestation of innovation resistance and the dynamics involved in its entanglement with innovation processes.
