Comment on "Innovation Traps"

Hi Eleanor

May I suggest that there is a barrier to evaluation based on the value that everybody must be treated the same? I would suggest that your article could elaborate the need for experimental evaluation of innovations using a statistical design. This would require that there:

  • are experimental and control groups;
  • the innovation is so well defined that others can introduce it;
  • that the innovation is done the same way each time;
  • and, that the participants go through the procedures that are expected of them.

Just a thought.
