Senior leaders and talent development professionals overwhelmingly agree that innovation is a top priority and essential for success. Yet very few are satisfied with the level of innovation happening in their organizations.
ATD (National)’s research on the role of training to build innovative organizations shows that innovative organizations share these traits: an innovative and committed executive team, being good at implementing change, being effective at cross functional teamwork, and having a published innovation strategy. And while our research shows a direct link between innovation and organizational success, the reverse is not always true: successful organizations are not necessarily innovative.
As the demand for training on teamwork, communication skills, leadership, and change management continues, programs on innovative thinking or managing innovative teams are in the least demand and rarely offered to staff. So how can an organization change its approach to think and operate more innovatively? How can the talent development function play a key role in driving innovative thinking and practices?
In this session you will hear about organizations that have made innovation a top priority, are embracing it as part of their talent development strategy, and are driving more innovation through organizational culture, change management, and teamwork.
