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
