Most companies value predictability, control, reliability, repeatability, and continuity above innovation and creativity. The ability to increase business value through innovation is a critical success driver for most organizations. The key to unlocking the door to innovation is to develop a Culture of Innovation. Without the right culture, no set of tools, methods, or people will be successful.
Why is culture the determining factor? What is the culture of innovation? In this interactive Tech & Toast, learn from two local leaders who push the boundaries of culture and innovation.
Discussion Points and Take-Aways:
1. Learn how to build an innovative culture
2. Discover best practices in leadership, management and team building
3. Gain insight and details on how to build a culture of trust that invests in its people, tolerates risk, and one that encourages opposing points of view
