Developing an Innovation Culture – Workshops & Seminars. Modern times have seen increasing emphasis on innovation as a key contributor to organizational success. Innovation not only concerns the creation of ideas that are novel and useful to the workplace, but also includes the implementation of those ideas to develop new products or services (i.e., product innovation) and new ways of working (i.e., process innovation, for example though changes in HRM practice or work design). See also Innovation & Idea Management. Course Objective. What would an innovative organisational culture look like? It would be one in which employees are motivated and confident enough to continually try new things out. To this end, employees would be equipped with the right types of knowledge, skills and abilities to both effectively generate and implement new ideas. However, innovation will only flourish if the work environment is supportive of these efforts
