We build organizational innovation cultures that foster autonomy, creativity and growth.
WHERE DO GREAT IDEAS COME FROM?
Smart, creative, self-reliant, socially sensitive and diverse workforce
Cultural norms of candor, freedom, openness, and failure acceptance
Development, feedback and reward systems incentivising creativity
Autonomous decision making based on growth-oriented leader-leader relations
How To Reach Freenovation?
We Build Organizational Innovation Cultures – This Is How We Do It
Start the Journey
You need to think carefully whether you’re actually ready for this ardous ride and get a buy-in from the team for success.
Assemble the Team
What kind of people work for you? Are they smart? Open to experience? Diverse? Creative? Can you get more?
Provide Safety and Freedom
Rebuild the teams and systems to allow for candid discussions, idea generation and freedom in decision making. Accept failure.
Foster Growth Leadership
Believe in your teams to make them great, set high standards for innovation and equip them with skills that will make your leadership unnecessary.
Foster the environment that builds creative self-efficacy, provides support for innovation and enables freedom and autonomy.
Teams > Egos
Implementing new ideas is almost always a group effort, not a solo endeavor. Innovation is about collaboration, not self-interest.
Freedom > Regulations
To innovate, you need to manage creative conflicts well and make people comfortable with failure. Innovation is about safety, not risk.
Autonomy > Hierarchy
When people are free and encouraged to go against the grain, creativity flourishes. Innovation is challenging, not accepting the status quo.
Mindsets > Traits
Cognitive ability, personality and creativity are important, but not as important as creative self-efficacy. Innovation is a choice, not a trait.
Measure & Understand
Our Diagnosis – Two methods, single goal
Our custom-made set of questionnaires, filled out by leaders and employees of an organization, constitutes the core of our diagnostic process.
The questionnaires allows us to map the four key organizational innovation culture areas along with both subjective and objective outcomes of innovation.
The tool enables us to measure the organizational innovation culture on a set of dimension, which allows us to customize the intervention to the organizational needs.
Our standardized interview process focuses on asking teams and people key questions about the organizational systems, values and practices.
Using the antropological methods of participant observation and shadowing we can get a deeper insight into the iorganization.
It all helps us to understand the organizational culture of innovation and triangulate the results with a more quantitative approach.
