Towards Innovation Maturity
How can you create and sustain a culture of innovation? How do you get everyone on board, from executive leaders to your operational staff? In today’s innovation landscape, we see a clear need for innovation excellence. What does this mean? Once you’ve established an innovation culture, you shouldn’t stop there. By planning a gradual increase, your innovation maturity can evolve into excellence.
How do you do that?
Building maturity is the same as building an ambidextrous organization that is successful in the long term, and allows you to explore new ideas. You need to formalize your organization to develop an engine that captures, develops and selects ideas, and scales them around strategic topics. With the Innovation Maturity Model you can valorize the process step-by-step.
This webinar is applicable for companies with an established and organized innovation mindset, but also for those just starting to set up an innovation culture. Our goal? Help you upgrade your innovation maturity and give you step-by-step guidance towards innovation excellence.
