1 Innovation Culture Mapping Best Practices

This session is for leaders serious about strategically creating a culture of growth and innovation. It covers how to build an environment that embraces positive change management for sustainable and purpose driven innovation. This gamified session is themed to include a memorable engaging global challenge. In this challenge participants visit different regions around the world and explore case studies of innovative countries, cultures, companies and leaders (best practices). This results in identifying key qualities which can then be brought back to the organization.

The Innovation Culture Mapping is recommended to:

  • Identify and navigate the 4-key innovation ‘Paradox Pairs’ that can block or enable growth though the ‘Polar Positioning’ tool and apply them at work (global best practices).
  • Provide a strategic implementable plan / road map and practical tool for sustainable innovation, with action plans and behavior modification strategies.
  • Recognize and then deal with the typical tensions in organizations related to growth and change.
  • Determine the best path ahead for individuals and their teams in order to remain open to growth and sustainable innovation.

Outline

Each of the 4 Paradox pairs (4 modules) cycles through the following stages:

  1. Destinations (best practices) – Dynamic Polar Positioning Research Mapping
  2. Checklist – Current and desired states of innovation readiness
  3. Applications – How to lead a culture of innovation and navigate change

A gamification version “The Innovation Race” can be integrated into the workshop to add a level of group engagement and memorable theme.

2: Innovation Culture Mapping Checklist

This session covers how to use a detailed checklist learn to plot the best practices of innovative cultures (including companies and countries). The paradox checkpoint summary checklist helps participants to reflect on these successful culture and practices and map current and desired states.

Outcomes & Takeaways

  1. Map ‘current’ and ‘desired’ states‘ revealing innovation readiness for your organisation.
  2. Learn how to lead a culture of innovation and navigate rapid change through case studies and ‘our organisation’ checklists.
  3. Identify how to navigate the 4 key ‘Paradox Pair’ leadership behaviors between ‘exploration’ and ‘preservation’ using the Polar Positioning tool.

3: Innovation Culture Mapping Applications

  1. Connect behaviors with practical applications and actions required to innovate forward.
  2. Create a strategic implementable plan / road map for sustainable innovation with practical action plans and behavior strategies.
  3. Identify how to ensure the goals can be reached through filtering through the leadership and the organisation.
