How can organizations create a culture that is more supportive of innovation?
That’s the question we set out to answer through a survey and a set of qualitative interviews of innovation and strategy leaders in industries ranging from aerospace to utilities to financial services to consumer products. In all, we heard from 270 corporate leaders.
In our view, fostering a culture that is supportive of innovation has never been more important than right now. 2020 will be a year of tremendous stress, pivots, and reprioritizing in every organization. Will your organization be able to source and act on the best ideas — ideas that may come from anyone? Test them fast enough? Get them deployed with help from colleagues who are working from home? Show your senior leadership the impact you’re having — when you can no longer knock on their office doors for a quick chat? A culture that is supportive of innovation is one that is agile. It will help many organizations rebound from the intense challenges caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
So where do you start? Innovation Leader's latest research report offers case studies, data, and concrete guidance on how to change your organization's culture for the better at this critical juncture.
