Six innovations from three universities in Catalonia (Spain) were studied using were focus interviews, focus groups and document analysis. The main results are the following: in relation to the degree of change, innovations differ in the type of leadership required, and in the values and resistances associated with them. The type of leadership, strategies, impact and financing involved vary according to the scope of the innovation. Innovations show different origins according to their nature, being mainly curricular or organizational.
