Do you face any of these issues?
- Worry that a fear-of-failure permeates the organization preventing new ideas from happening.
- Lack of fresh ideas to meet strategic challenges.
- Worry that the competition is going to pass you by.
- Worry that there are ideas that could yield big impact… but you don’t know how to surface those ideas.
- There are so many ideas in the organization, but few of them are connected to the company strategy, and with so much “noise” it’s impossible to tell which is which.
- There is a lack of a repeatable, disciplined approach for generating, testing, and implementing innovative ideas.
Incubate Innovation in Your Organization
Culture impacts the way organizations get things done at every level. Innovation — whether small or incremental, large or disruptive — is about change. And change in an organization is intentional. Incubating innovation in any organization is dependent on all levels understanding their responsibility and/or accountability for exploring, doing, and sustaining innovation.
Leaders contribute to culture by what they say and by what they do.
Managers contribute to culture in their daily interactions that reinforce or conflict with leadership direction.
Individuals can impact the corporate culture through contributions that impact how people work and what they achieve.
Workshops to Incubate a Culture of Innovation
The Experience Praxis Group offer a series of workshops to Incubate a Culture of Innovation to build or enhance the underlying skills required for innovation at all levels of an organization. Workshops are available for leadership, managers, and innovation participants.

Driving and Empowering Innovation Through Teams
1 Day Workshop
We often hear the need to, “fail early, fail fast”. But what does this mean for managers? Front-line managers lead teams of individual contributors and can be a conduit for up-to-date knowledge, market trends, business challenges and insight into customers. How do they make that happen? Innovators need this information to make their ideas relevant. Ignite Innovation team members require support to fail, learn, and persevere in taking an idea forward and doing the hard work of implementation.
