Weekend Conference Presentation
Afternoon Parallel Track - June 11th

Improving Organisational Innovative Capability

Presented by Paul Hollingworth

Primary Focus: Innovation
Secondary Focus: Leadership


Abstract: Dr Deming placed innovation as the most important factor for the long term survival of any business. Clearly, organisations trapped in fear-driven, risk-averse, command and control cultures are unlikely to nurture creativity or realise innovation - but what to do instead?  Here, Paul Hollingworth presents the findings of his extensive research into how  leadership affects levels of innovation and creativity in the workplace. This  research has revealed that organisational innovative capability can be enhanced by paying attention to four key responsibilities which will be explored in this session.
