To have an innovative mindset, organizations must recognize the need for continual change and be committed to supporting it through action.

Organizations with a culture of innovation have a futuristic vision, a desire to achieve that future state and are not afraid to fail along the way. Innovative organizations welcome diverse perspectives and provide employees with meaningful opportunities to challenge conventional thinking.

Questions to consider when evaluating your culture of innovation
  • Do your people understand what the organization is trying to do and their role in making innovation successful?
  • Is the talent management process related to innovation synchronized with all the key outcomes?
  • Are you leaning into every element of technology and data maturity/management to enable effective strategy execution within your operations?
  • Are you paying attention to relevant performance metrics and adjusting the approaches and priorities as needed if goals are not reached?
