Radical innovations pose a great challenge for strategic management. Innovation management has traditionally approached change with static methods relying on information on capabilities, strategy and markets. We introduce a system dynamics model to describe how learning changes the dynamics of innovation management. We use a post radical innovation environment to illustrate how the system reacts to different situations through the process of learning. As a result we propose two major propositions for future study that have not been addressed by past innovation management literature.
