Fostering Innovatiion

Posted by Mark Salinas on June 23, 2008

In the world today a successful company is always looking at new ideas to help grow the business.

Some ideas:

Show your employees that you think of innovation as an ongoing process. Some ideas will work and some won’t. Keep experimenting.

Listen, listen, listen. Innovation is a collaborative process.

Be open to “accidents,” the unexpected connections that spark new ideas. Inspiration comes from everywhere—often from outside your own field.

Get Feedback from your own employees—they know the company’s problems and goals best. This is probably one time you don’t need outside consultants.

Be patient. Creativity can’t be hurried.

Coming up with new ideas should be an ongoing process…….always in the plan.
