Can HR kill innovation or help it?

This  article asks the above question. There is always a risk in answering such questions.

The article asks why aren’t you putting smart people in HR and  why aren’t you pushing them in innovation.

Wrong. HR people, like others, are smart. And you don’t push HR or anyone into innovation. Killing innovation is also not HR’s monopoly. Innovation is so easy to kill. Like others, HR people are also influenced or driven by what they perceive to be their performance yardsticks.The problem might be elsewhere or everywhere -that means it emanates from the top.
