• who developed the new or significantly improved goods, services, processes or methods.
Businesses could provide more than one response, i.e. they were asked to report the degree of novelty and who developed the innovation for each type of introduced innovation. This meant that a business that had introduced four new goods or services could legitimately provide a response against each of the degrees of novelty specified.
For the two topics included in this section, it is not possible to release these data by business employment size or industry due to confidentiality requirements.
Innovation that was new to the business only was the most common response for all innovation types. New goods or services were the most commonly reported type of introduced innovation for each of the remaining novelty responses: new to the world (4%); new to Australia (8%); and new to the industry within Australia (10%).
Development of innovation within this business or a related company only was the most commonly reported source of development for all four broad innovation types. Marketing methods was the innovation most likely to be developed by the business in cooperation with other businesses or institutions (31%). Goods or services had the highest proportion of innovation developed by other businesses or institutions (13%).
