Diagnosis and Design of Institutional Innovation Infrastructure in Organizations
About the Activity
An interactive and professional workshop with the participation of the organization's senior management; this workshop acts as a 'launching pad' for the design and implementation of institutional innovation mechanisms within the organization. The workshop is based on validated models concerning the culture of innovation (Schein, 1980), and international standards in the field of innovation management (ISO 56002:2019, ISO 56004:2019). The purpose of the workshop is to build a professional language in the field of institutional innovation among the organization's management, a joint and agreed diagnosis, designing action directions for continuation, and solidifying a strategic process while integrating key role holders in the organization into the process.
The activity includes the following parts:
Preliminary process - Completing a short questionnaire on the culture of innovation by a wide range of the organization's employees.
The first day of the workshop - with the participation of the organization's senior management - knowledge loading, tool acquisition, and diagnosis based on questionnaires.
Intermediate meeting - a meeting in a condensed forum of the organization's management to examine the diagnostic outputs and joint preparation towards the second day of the workshop.
The second day of the workshop - with the participation of the organization's senior management - joint processing of the outputs.
Production of a summarizing document - including the diagnosis, insights that emerged, and recommendations for desirable activities for the existence of a supporting infrastructure for institutional innovation.
In addition to their participation in the workshop, the participants will receive an accreditation certificate for managing change and implementing practical innovation in organizations.
