Igniting Innovation: HR's Inside Track to Redefining Sustainability

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference
This session uses powerful market models, proven approaches, and practical steps for implementing innovation as a discipline in your organization.

Reinvention has become a given in how we operate our organizations in today's environment of rapid change. However, it is becoming a less effective differentiator as the pace of change in many industries is moving faster than incremental improvements can keep up. What is more critical for operating a profitable and sustainable enterprise? Innovation. What is at the heart of innovation? Organizational culture? Who is uniquely positioned to influence culture? You are. Batie will show you how to: · Reshape your organizational culture and climate and the tensions that hinder innovation. · Generate, select and launch new ideas that lead to growth. · Position innovation as a discipline while moving beyond strategic planning, ideation and brainstorming.
