Creating a culture for innovation

It’s tough when markets change and your people within the company don’t - Harvard Business Review

 

How to start...

Creating a culture for innovation is not the starting point, but the result of your innovation efforts.

Creating a culture starts with giving your employees the opportunity to act upon novel business opportunities and implement new service solutions successfully and cost effectively.

How?

By setting clear goals and objectives, fostering the champions of innovation projects, asking teams to be diligent in their innovation efforts, bringing structure to the innovation process, and showcasing the results, you will build a culture for innovation that is sustainable. An innovation culture that will enable your organization to grow and thrive in this era of the fourth industrial revolution that is full of change and opportunities.

Satisfaction Guarantee

Your success is important to us! We therefore guarantee the outcome of all the programs we offer. That does not mean we guarantee the success of every single innovation project. Essential to healthy innovation culture is the ability to timely stop initiatives that turn out to be less promising than expected after some initial research and exploration.

Because we invest in providing an “innovation manager” for your organization as part of this service, and incur significant hard costs for each of your initiatives we guide through the innovation journey, we do not offer a money-back guarantee on this offering.

Instead, if you are not completely satisfied with your investment, you can cancel the service at any time and request a refund of all unused program fees.

The innovation process

We use a sequence of five innovation programs to provide structure to the innovation process:

Employees with an idea, will follow the Drive program to build a team and get approval to proceed with their project. Depending on their performance and your approval, teams proceed through the innovation process, one milestone at a time.

Collaboratively, we create successful innovation outcomes and build a culture for innovation:

  • Your employees know your workflows, clients, and industry.
  • We compliment their knowledge with our innovation management expertise and experience
  • We guide project teams through the innovation process, one milestone at a time
  • We provide insights and data on each project team regarding their progress and performance
  • You get to decide which project teams to invest in
  • Your clients get to benefit from the innovative solutions that your project teams create

Innovation culture as a must-have

According to the management literature, you should innovate all the time to keep ahead of the competition and survive.

However, we know from our research that about 70% of service firms innovate only when an opportunity arises. Less than 30% of all firms have a structured innovation process and the capabilities necessary to innovate successfully.

Without the appropriate guidance and a structured innovation process, innovation projects are doomed to fail. Without success stories to share, it is impossible to foster a culture for innovation.

Innovation Management as a Services addresses this problem. We innovate with you. You bring in the innovation goals. Your employees bring in the ideas. We provide structure to your innovation process and work with your employees to develop, implement and deliver new high-value service solutions.

The result? A culture for innovation and a successful organization!

That way, your employees and innovation teams know what to do and what to focus on, while you get the information you need to know which project teams to invest in.
