Today fostering more intrapreneuring and innovation in teams can mean the difference between merely surviving versus thriving. innovation is no longer the land of only R and D (Research and development).
AS you get yourself and your team thinking about innovation it may be useful to contextualize it for yourselves. Consider having some dialogue around these questions:
1. What does innovation mean for us as a team?
2. Why is innovation important?
3. What examples do we have of innovation around us?
4. What is needed for us to be more innovative (encouraging and fostering more risk taking, culture change, more autonomy for each individual)
Innovation is not a topic we have explored much here at the Teams365 blog, and my guess is that many of you are being challenged and asked to be more innovative. We'll dedicate some future posts to this, including this week's Leadership Toolkit.
What are your next steps around innovation?
