Desire is not enough. Training is not enough. Rewards are not enough. If we want to see creative thinking, collaboration and problem solving thrive in our organizations, we must intentionally build the structures, policies and systems to make that happen year after year. This is the new desire based mantra of organizations of every type. In business, government, education and human services, it’s widely agreed that innovation culture is the differentiator that will make any organization thrive into the future. There are proven must-do strategic actions, which will deliver you to your aspiration and keep you there over time. There are equally proven pitfalls and counter-intuitive moves. We’ll explore both and then develop clear plans of action to get you to an innovation culture that lasts and thrives in your competitive niche. In this course you will:

• Understand the 12 key interdependent strategies for developing sustained innovation culture.
• Assess the strengths and weaknesses in your current cultural efforts aimed at creative thinking, collaboration, engagement and innovation.
• Plan the correct next moves that will allow you to leave a lasting legacy of improved creative collaboration in your organization.
