In this podcast episode, DecisionWise Consultant, Thomas Olsen, discusses the topic of innovation and how it contributes to the success of an organization.
Many companies want to be innovative but unknowingly put up barriers to prevent this from happening. Managers might say things like, “This is how we’ve always done it,” or “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Management needs to give encouragement and time to their employees to share new, innovative ideas. If it’s not a part of the culture, it won’t happen.
But where do you start? You don’t have to reinvent the wheel in order to be innovative. You can start with improvements to processes that save time and money. You can hold brainstorming meetings and reward your employees for experimenting and questioning the status quo.
Learn about how to implement these ideas and more in this episode.
