Contributor Tynnhammar, M. (editor) Publication year 2018 Abstract Organising in a mindful way is key to helping innovation teams become more resilient and thereby increase the chances of innovation success. Organising in a mind-ful way, called ‘mindful infrastructure,’ implies creating the right conditions for teams to excel. To this end, four elements are crucial. When teams are 1) feeling psychological-ly safe, 2) experience a learning environment, 3) have a say in decision-making, and 4) see that leadership creates synergy, the foundation is laid for resilient team behavior. In turn, this ‘team innovation resilience behavior’ enables teams to successfully deal with critical incidents, which, otherwise, could lead to innovation failure. Resilient innova-tion teams are extremely alert to small things that can become big problems, hate to jump to conclusions, link management goals with operational practice, value expertise stronger than rank, and can radically change course if required. This helps them keep their innovation projects on track and thus improve the chances of innovation success. This study has sought to investigate the scientific underpinnings of mindful infrastruc-ture and team innovation resilience behavior. In addition, it provides practical guide-lines for building a Resilient Innovation Team.
