We have helped plan and lead more than 50 company-wide Innovation Challenges. Done right, it is without comparison the most effective way to create a more innovative culture within a company. It involves all levels of the company; the leadership teams set the direction and decided which ideas to invest in, managers learn how to urge employees to look for new innovative solutions, and selected employees learn are trained in methods to quickly test and validate the best ideas. The result is a change in mindset through new successful ways of working, at least five high potential business opportunities and improved innovation skills across all levels of the company.
