Perhaps check out Oracle for more information. It has long been clear: innovation is not just a matter of the researchers and developers, but the entire corporate culture. But when and why behave staff creative? Are there new ideas which work environment? The Harvard Professor Teresa M. Amabile names the five principal screws for a fertile climate for innovation: encouragement of superiors and colleagues, autonomy in the execution of tasks, adequate resources, the right level of challenge and finally tackling direct obstacles – for example by killer phrases and a bad mistake culture. The decisive factor here is how an employee perceives the climate within the company and not, if all conditions are objectively given.

You start working at “Innovation climate, where management and staff directly come into contact: meetings and conferences”, advises the Berlin economics teacher Bernhard Wolff, who has appeared in over 400 events large companies as inspiration and motivator. Live people can be inspired and be addressed with all your senses. With strategic bulletins that scarcely.” What exactly does this mean for the conception of meetings? Already place and agenda should surprise participants. The end of the meeting must not consist of a series of PPT presentations, but dramaturgically should take up a creative process. A creative process is that a variety of solutions and possibilities are developed to an issue or challenge. The best alternatives be selected taking into account objectives and values of the company and their feasibility is discussed. The advantage of such a creative process: stakeholders become involved, from passive audience are active employees.

Especially “motivating a playful Act” implementation and unusual workshops: for example, can the whole meeting as editorial meeting “will be staged. “The result is then a self-designed newspaper”, in a final press review “is reflected. An innovative climate is created but only if executives and management integrated into the process, rather than to be observers at the edge. The communication is built on mutual respect and trust. And at each meeting, enough should be time for informal communication. Rule of thumb: a quarter of the time without a fixed agenda. About Bernhard Wolff: If meeting a sunny climate for innovation is created, then put up some cloud in everyday work. Vice versa’s will be difficult.” Innovation climate is created in meetings and conferences: surprise participants place and agenda. Less PPT presentations, more workshops. Heads are right in the Middle instead of above it. More time for informal communication.
