Adaption-Innovation: In the Context of Diversity and Change


Adaption-Innovation theory (A-I theory) is a model of problem solving and creativity, which aims to increase collaboration and reduce conflict within groups. A-I Theory and the associated Kirton Adaption-Innovation (KAI) test have been extensively researched and are increasingly used as tools for teambuilding and personnel management. Kirton outlines the central concepts of the theory, including the processes of problem solving, decision making and creativity.
