Innovation projects, like all processes of operational change, are prone to initial skepticism. But any innovation strategy, no matter how sophisticated, is ultimately worthless if implementation fails because of the organizational culture. Written and unwritten rules in the form of customs and manners, shared values, norms, and attitudes influence the way employees think and act within the company. It is the different backgrounds and experiences of a diverse workforce that hold great potential for innovation. However, this potential can only unfold if the uniqueness of each person is valued and ways of thinking that deviate from the usual paths are accepted and encouraged. The tools that follow can help create an inclusive climate in the company and develop a culture of innovation that thrives on the diversity and uniqueness of its employees.
