Abstract: There is increasing recognition around the world that innovation is a key driver of the competitiveness of firms and organisations in the global economy, and the quality of both private and publicly provided services. The Australian Government is one of many encouraging innovation as part of a strategy to "enhance international competitiveness, economic prosperity and social wellbeing" (Backing Australia's Ability, 2001, 2004). It will be argued here that this strategy has shortcomings that must be urgently addressed.
