Research on the „Underestimation of User Innovation“
In a large-scale survey of n = 1758 managers, politicians, public administrators and scholars, we found a substantial underestimation of users as a source of innovation. Such an underestimation likely has severe negative consequences for the competitiveness of firms, for innovation dynamics in economies, and for societal welfare (see article).
If you are interested to replicate or extend our research and measure the awareness of user innovation in another context, please feel free to use our questionnaire.
