Building innovation capabilities

Progressing and innovating from ‘business today’ to ‘business tomorrow’ is a challenging task, and that change is not getting any easier! While executives believe that innovation is key to achieving their objectives, research suggests that only 6% are satisfied with their innovation performance.

What often happens without a robust innovation process is that things can get out of hand. On the opposite side of the spectrum, someone (often a manager or CEO) may have one idea that they think is great and force the organization forward. When it comes to innovation, organizations seek a better way, and to follow that logical, proven approach to generate real value over the long run.
This webinar will describe how we think about innovation management and how to begin the journey to world class innovation capability and culture.
