Innovation in business is defined as moving forward by implementing new, more effective processes, products, and ideas. But such innovation cannot simply be demanded by organizational leaders. The employees charged with the duty to innovate must be motivated and empowered to do so. Unfortunately, that’s where many of the challenges of innovation emerge.
Employees will only unleash their creativity in the pursuit of more innovative business ideas IF the organizational culture fully supports their efforts.
But how do you encourage, support, and reinforce these cultural values throughout the workforce?
I have created an infographic to help. This infographic not only defines each of these cultural characteristics, but also provides quick tips to introduce and sustain them within the workplace. Although I’ve included it in this post, you can download the pdf by clicking here.
