Innovation should be a major part of every organization, not just for-profit businesses.
The primary reason for this is that innovation is not about technology. Rather, it is about solving problems, and every organization has problems that need solving.
In all organizations, employees continually have opportunities to try new things, test processes, and improve efficiencies. These opportunities exist, but leaders need to make space for employees to flourish. One of the most important aspects of establishing an innovative organizational culture is embracing failure as part of innovation. In workplace cultures that foster innovation, employees ask questions and make mistakes without fear of reprisal. Everyone is expected to challenge the way things are done, and everyone is continually focused on how they might do things better. Innovation should not be the result of a once-a-year brainstorming event – it can and should be a continual process, something that happens every day.
This presentation will provide strategies for creating and sustaining a culture of innovation.
