Leadership


Building the knowledge, behaviors, and practices to foster and sustain innovation

Current research and experience show that effective leadership is the most important capability for high-performance strategic innovation...and one of the most elusive.

Key questions to address include:

  • What leadership skills and behaviors are important at all levels, and how can we foster them?
  • How can we create alignment toward strategic innovation objectives throughout our organization?
  • How will we effectively govern and manage a portfolio of innovation initiatives?

Drawing on in-depth expertise in leadership development, cultural alignment, and best-practice management processes, Productivity can help you build essential capabilities and guide the effective rollout of your organizational transformation.

Leadership Development

  • Instill the processes and knowledge to develop a common understanding of how an innovation system works—for leaders and all appropriate levels of your organization
  • Define, develop, and practice innovation leadership roles, skills, and the rules of engagement

Culture and Change Management

  • Refine and communicate the top-level vision for new value creation, and how it will transform the organization
  • Manage and monitor the structural and behavioral changes needed to move the needle on your cultural compass.
  • Create and manage performance measures that drive innovation

Governance and Oversight

  • Define the parameters and scope of your innovation portfolio.
  • Determine policies and processes for managing the portfolio and pipeline, and for making critical decisions.
