Dilara Albayrak Serin, Ayten Yılmaz Yalçıner
Innovation is a crucial subject for a country which tries to be one of the most developed economies in the World. Innovation provides increased efficiency in several areas, enhanced quality of life and competitive advantages. Hence any development within this field should be monitored and well adapted. At the point of adaptation and implementation, one of the key disciplines is engineering. For that reason engineers should be open to innovation and individual innovativeness. The aim of this paper is to find perception of engineers on these subjects. To measure these concepts, a survey with twenty-eight questions was answered by one hundred and twenty engineers who work in different departments and sectors. Calculated Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of this study is 0.8. Results of this study show the distribution of innovative approach among engineers and how can be the level of individual innovativeness increased.
