Abstract

Innovation is now surely a non-negotiable component of every university strategic plan. Few would dispute that innovation is an increasingly important activity within Australian universities as they search for ways to deal with the opportunities and problems arising from issues such as falling international student numbers, student demand-driven funding, continuous technology upgrades, budgetary constraints and rising service delivery expectations. Successful innovation to address these issues can improve the productivity and organisational efficiency of a university, provide new services and methods of operation, and reduce red tape. Innovation is now surely a non-negotiable component of every university strategic plan. But how much is understood about innovation within the sector and how can we improve our performance in this crucial activity? For example: How do universities in Australia innovate? What is best innovation practice in the higher education sector? What strategies have been proven within the sector to provide the most high quality innovations and the most benefits?
