Building High Performing Teams for Innovation
How to develop a culture of structured experimentation and continuous learning to drive innovation and growth
Driving INNOVATION with High Performing Teams
What Is It?
Every organization follows a set of best practices. Some may be company-wide and formalized like ISO9000 or Six Sigma. Others may be team-level operational processes.
In some cases, these best practices live up to their name and make the company faster and more competitive.
But in many more cases, they only serve to frustrate us with their inefficiencies.
And yet so often, our teams continue to ‘just follow the process’.
Why? Because it’s too hard and painful to get things to change. It’s “not our job”. And there’s no reward or recognition for doing it.
But if you’re trying to grow your business, there’s a BIG problem lurking here…
Great ideas come from spotting the problems people have with existing solutions and then proposing creative new alternatives.
If you want to inspire everyone to play their part in company growth, change must start with the operational processes.
When we empower staff to challenge and improve processes, they get to practice entrepreneurial skills in a low-risk, safe environment.
In this training, we explore how to develop a culture of continuous learning and improvement – so that best practices become something to be incrementally improved rather than slavishly followed.
We examine how to make it easy and rewarding for people to innovate.
In short, we help your teams think more like entrepreneurs so that growth and innovation can evolve from anywhere in your company.
This training is available either as a traditional, in-person 1-day delivery, or as live online training delivered over Teams or Zoom in live training sessions.
