This is the third of several ‘Innovation Perspectives‘ articles we will publish this week from multiple authors to get different perspectives on ‘What are three specific actions that a non-innovative company can take to become more innovative?’. Here is the next perspective in the series:
by Paul Sloane
Three things your organization can do to become more innovative:
- Set goals for innovation in terms of new products, services, methods, ideas etc and incorporate them into the the objectives of all the senior team.
- Establish and resource an employee ideas scheme. Encourage suggestions on specific topics. Ensure all ideas are quickly evaluated and the best are implemented.
- Allocate time, money and people to innovation. Give people some time for brainstorming and experimentation. Appoint innovation champions to help drive through the best ideas.
