Developing a Culture of Innovation
Holiday Inn–Round Rock, 2370 Chisholm Trail, Round Rock, TX 78681
Registration, Networking, Lunch: 11:15 AM – 12 PM
Luncheon presentation 12:00 – 1:00 pm
In our fast-changing times innovation is seen as an imperative. But a common misconception is that innovation just means developing new products. Highly innovative companies understand that creativity and innovation is at the center of
an organization’s way of doing things. What is necessary to build a culture that fosters innovation across all departments and becomes a way of thinking? Creativity and creative problem solving are becoming the most sought-after work
skills, but only 50% of Americans believe they are creative. Neuroscience has found evidence that everyone is wired to be creative and that creativity can be trained and developed. How can organizations build teams who know how to collaborate creatively?
During this presentation, that includes interactive creative exercises, we will address the following questions:
● Why do we need a culture of innovation?
● What is the impact of creativity on business?
● How can organizations train employees to think creatively?
● How to build innovative teams?
● What is needed to develop a culture of innovation?
