Technology Executive and Innovator, Julia Austin, asks the question.... Is your company really set up to innovate?
Summary: Innovation is really another word for creativity. So when a company launches an innovation program, or even goes so far as to appoint or hire someone to lead their innovation efforts, what they’re attempting to say is, “We are a creative organization that wants to foster and support creative stuff.” But the big question is, are they set up to succeed in making that statement a reality?
Come here Julia talk about ways to ensure your innovation program is the best and creative.
