Linking SECI Model to Innovation

I have some thoughts on how Knowledge Management and Innovation are linked... There are a number of models for implementing innovation. A simple model that I like involves 5 steps:
1. Idea Generation
2. Idea Selection
3. Idea Implementation
4. Idea Sustaining
5. Idea Diffusion
I can see a close link between this model (which is still to be proven?) to the SECI model for Knowledge Management.
If we look on innovation management as managing "ideas", there seems to be an even closer link.
If we combine item 1. and 2. above and call them "Socialisation", the rest fits well with the final 3 steps in the SECI model.
I'd welcome your reactions on my observations. This could be an interesting discussion...
