Innovation Pulse Audit
Everyone agrees that innovation is critical to organisational sustainability.
It is an important process through which organisations overcome challenges and achieve success.
But innovation is not simply the generation of “new” ideas. To start with, not all new ideas add value.
We also need to evaluate the ideas in light of organisation strategy and objectives.
In addition, the structure and policies of an organisation must also support the execution and implementation of those ideas.
Actions always speak louder than words. If the CEO says “we must innovate” but the culture does not protect and nurture creative ideas, “innovation” will just remain a buzzword.
Is your current organisation climate conducive to innovation?
How would your staff respond to the following statements?
- Our leaders openly support new ideas, initiatives and methods
- We have a good understanding of customers’ behaviours and what motivates them
- We reward staff for innovative thinking
- Our organisation has a focus on change
If you want your organisation to be truly innovative, use this Pulse Audit regularly to gain insight of the factors critical for innovation to succeed in your organisation.
Then act on the issues identified in the Audit Report to keep moving forward, overcome challenges, and achieve long-term success.
