Want the Keys to Unlock Innovation? Culture, Conflict and Structure.

How do you make space in the day-to-day to enable creativity, imagination and fresh thinking?

· Organisational

Innovation doesn’t come from a single individual coming up with a creative idea — it comes from fixing something that’s broken and encouraging employees to test ideas and challenge each other. Bringing together different perspectives is crucial, and you simply can’t have that without a full team of people working together to solve a problem.


An organization looking to enable innovation must satisfy these requirements:

  • create a culture of innovation that gives employees permission to challenge the norm
  • encourages a workplace that isn’t afraid to embrace conflict, and
  • build the infrastructure to make space for their ideas
