Although only implemented creative idea represents value for the organization and becomes an innovation, there is surprisingly little knowledge on the factors facilitating the implementation of innovations, particularly on an individual level. This study attempts to close this gap by developing an integrated framework for the idea implementation stage of the innovation process on an individual level. The research is qualitative and exploratory in nature and is based on two methods: (1) structured literature review conducted for deriving the framework and (2) validation by the expert panel of innovation professionals in academia from eight countries. The completed framework consists of 18 individual-level factors spread across four categories (Expertise, Motivation, Social skills and Personality traits) and can be used for the development of tools and methods for HR and managerial practices aiming at the improvement of the effectiveness of innovation implementation in organizations.
