Shape a Culture of Innovation
Making innovation sustainable in an organization requires a change of mindset catalyzed by its employees and leaders, an environment of collaboration and empowerment and a process that seeks to generate value by identifying real business and human challenges. Therefore, we designed a framework to support the creation of an Innovation Culture that considers five interconnected enablers: People, Process, Place, supported by Leadership, and Technology.
