Extenden abstract. Organising in a mindful way is a central aspect to making innovation teams become more resilient and enahnce their chances of innovation success. Such organising, called mindful infrastructure, implies creating the right conditions for teams to excel. Four elements are crucial to achieve this. When teams are 1) feeling psychologically safe, 2) experience a learning environment, 3) have a say in decision‐making, and 4) see that leadership creates synergy, the enabling environment is created for resilient team behaviour. In turn, this team innovation resilience behaviour (IRB) enables teams to successfully deal with critical incidents, which, otherwise, could lead to innovation failure. Resilient innovation 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. Team IRB helps them keep their innovation projects on track and thus improve the chances of innovation success. This study first transfers insights of crisis and safety management to that of innovation management; second, it has investigates the scientific underpinnings of mindful infrastructure and team innovation resilience behaviour; and third, it provides practical guidelines for creating a Resilient Innovation Team.
