Culture eats strategy. The best strategies don’t survive in a culture that doesn’t support change, newness, and innovation. While the strategic plan, organization chart and employee manual may tell you how things are supposed to happen, culture is what determines what really happens. This webinar will address the key aspects of developing a culture of innovation so that new products, services, and offerings can be encouraged, nurtured, and launched without being stripped of their value and novelty.
This webinar will focus on the following:
- Business thinking vs. innovation thinking
- The levers of people, processes, and culture to move the needle
- Tips for developing a more innovative organization
Skills to be acquired:
- The ability to choose whether to apply “business thinking” or “innovation thinking.”
- How to begin or continue the innovation development in your organization to maximize impact.
