Corporations have problems dealing with the indeterminate aspects of innovation, particularly in the early ‘fuzzy front-end’ of the process. They have difficulty in reflecting upon and handling uncertainties of innovation; often exhibiting a ‘dynamic conservatism’ or a set of ‘defensive routines’ that inhibit inquiry about such contentious issues. They prefer, and are better equipped to operate within the ‘language of investment’ than the ‘language of invention’. In the language of investment, corporations select an environmental niche, and attempt to program and fabricate its future according to rational, stable assumptions and formulations. This view is closely bound to a utopian image of risk management as a tool able to objectively map, measure, and monitor future uncertainties that govern the behavior of the chosen niche. By seeking a close and clear fit between risk management solutions (means) and the dominant factors that determine future threats and opportunities to the niche environment (ends), corporations attempt to master risks and colonize the future through an orderly process. It is the argument of this book that this approach is only good when targeting and ‘solving’ well-defined problems of risk management and innovation within an intellectual terrain that has already been intellectually ‘set’. It fails to systematically recognize, reflect upon, and improve the effectiveness of the complex and creative task undertaken in the prior stage of ‘problem setting’ or ‘risk settling’. In contrast to this approach, it is argued that in ill-defined, unique, and uncertain situations, ‘problem setting’ or ‘risk settlement’ are the key primary activities, and ‘problem solving’ or ‘risk management’ only secondary. This study, as its strategic objective, seeks to juxtapose these contrasting views and develop an integrated conceptual framework capable of supporting a reflective practice amongst practitioners grappling with the interplay between ‘risk settlement’ and ‘risk management’ at the ‘fuzzy front-end’ of innovation. This framework, strongly influenced by Donald Schön’s scholarly work, takes the form of a set of concepts designed to synthesize, mobilize, and focus a wide range of academic literature on managing risk and handling uncertainty in product innovation. It informs reflections on professional practice through pragmatist/existential explorations of the role of metaphor in basic thinking processes as well as sociopolitical and psychological insights into the factors influencing how practitioners intuitively transform and translate uncertain, unmanageable realities into packages of manageable problems, converting uncertainty into manageable risks and rewards. In seeking to understand, reflect upon and improve the way in which such a conversion process within the practice of risk settlement works, it is argued that it is useful to view it has having four dimensions: ‘undertaking spontaneous and reciprocal reflections’, ‘coping with anxiety’, ‘use of metaphors’, and ‘use of frames and framing’. The study applies this framework and understanding to an empirical study of risk management and product innovation in the Australian Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) programme. A narrative reconstruction of critical events occurring in a series of R&D projects in the CRCs is used to elucidate, elaborate, and illustrate the conceptual framework that has been developed as both a contribution to risk management thought and, at least in prototype, as a guide for reflective practice. The framework, and its illustration, is designed to support practical reflection on the complexities of ‘problem setting’, ’risk settlement’ and the ‘non-rational’ character of ‘generative metaphors’ and the practice of ‘invention’. In the introduction, I point to the increasing rate of uncertain, unique, and complex problems as they affect professionals, organizations involved in innovation, and modern institutions as a whole.
