Building a Culture of Innovation

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: Lead your organization's pursuit of innovation as a competitive advantage by creating a culture of innovation.

Leaders love to talk innovation but very few organizations are finding success in achieving and sustaining the innovation they need to thrive. The inconvenient truth about innovation is that much of what makes it challenging is rooted in traditional management practices. The key to successful innovation is not more management; it’s culture. This session will reveal the three critical elements of a Culture of Innovation: Connection, Inclusion and Liberation. You will also learn practical approaches for integrating these vital elements into your current culture. Equipped with this framework, you will be able to position your organizations to achieve your strategic goals for innovation.
