Innovation can be defined differently but it always leads to the invention of a novel solution. Every organization wants to be innovative, but none of them become innovative overnight. It is a process of building a positive attitude and to encouraging individuals to invent beyond the-state-of-the art, in the particular area of interest. In this article, the thesis states that accountability supports management of innovations . As a result of the analysis, accountability is tied with the model of Management Innovation Framework formulated by Birkinshaw, Hamel and Mol (2008). The article also highlights the fact that accountability and management innovation are the background for the business model Canvas. (original abstract)
