Innovation Culture: How to build innovation and creativity into the fabric of your team and organization

posted Dec 8, 2012, 10:42 PM by Yotam Hod
Many companies, organizations and teams struggle with innovation; How to be more innovative, how to build mechanisms for innovation, how to sustain innovation? I believe that the answer lies not in only processes or mechanisms, but foremost in the special kind of culture that moves the individual to innovate. An enabling culture, in which people are not restrained from being naturally innovative. A cultural ecosystem in which people feel that it is truly safe to explore and to fail as an inherent part of innovation . A culture in which people feel safe to say: “I don’t know” or to ask silly questions when they do not understand something. This lecture we will explore some of the key frameworks, mindsets and models that are critical to building this kind of organizational culture, in which innovation naturally happens.
