Résumé (en anglais seulement)

Innovation is most often tasked to project teams and consequently companies depend upon the innovativeness of these teams for success. The purpose of this research is to better understand how project teams can be built and managed to be more innovative. I investigate which factors help or prevent teams from being innovative and how social capital affects project team innovativeness. The research methodology is a grounded theory case study of a large, global, high-technology leader. Primary data was collected through two rounds of interviews with sixteen project team members and managers at the company’s head office in Sweden and at one of its large sites in Canada. The results show that social capital is essential for building project team innovativeness, and that leadership is crucial for growing and enabling this social capital.
