CCL senior faculty members David Horth and Jonathan Vehar explain how to keep the innovation engine rolling in this ATD blog post that draws on CCL’s new Driving Results Through Innovation program.
Innovation is increasingly viewed as the key to future success for today’s companies and as the engine that creates new businesses.
Ample research bears this out, from a 2010 IBM survey of CEOs citing creativity as “the single most important leadership competency for enterprises seeking a path through … complexity” to a Conference Board report released in February 2015 that identified “creating cultures of innovation” as a key strategy to meet organizations’ top challenges. Research from Deloitte, PwC, and CapGemini, as well as numerous academic studies, affirm the need for innovation. But research also reveals a tough reality: most organizations are not good at innovation.
