Invoking Innovation in Others
Innovation is "in" these days. The word is on the lips of every CFO, CFO, CIO, and anyone else with a three-letter acronym after their name. As a result, many organizations are launching all kinds of "innovation initiatives" -- hoping to stir the creative soup and differentiate themselves from the competition. This is commendable. But it is also, too often, disappointing. Why? Because too much attention is being paid to process and too little attention is being paid to people and the art of fostering the kind of organizational culture that is the wellspring of innovation.
Participants in this groundbreaking workshop will have an engaging, hands on opportunity to think deeply about change, creativity, commitment, and what they can do, within the next 90 days, to jump start a sustainable culture of innovation within their respective spheres of influence.
