Our Manifesto

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.Steve Jobs

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

Ask

Our custom-made set of questionnaires, filled out by leaders and employees of an organization, constitutes the core of our diagnostic process.

Map

The questionnaires allows us to map the four key organizational innovation culture areas along with both subjective and objective outcomes of innovation.

Measure

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.

Interview

Our standardized interview process focuses on asking teams and people key questions about the organizational systems, values and practices.

Observe

Using the antropological methods of participant observation and shadowing we can get a deeper insight into the iorganization.

Undestand

It all helps us to understand the organizational culture of innovation and triangulate the results with a more quantitative approach.

What Would You Like To Know?

Ask us anything.

How do you understand innovation?
It’s actually quite easy. Innovation is creativity + implementation. It means that every time you come up with something relatively new, valuable, and you’re ready to make it happen, you’re innovating! Have you innovated today?
Who is it for?
We help companies and institutions that build their competitive advantage on innovation and would like to build a culture that fosters autnomy, creativity and growth. If you’re in IT, new technology or your company has an R&D department, it’s a no-brainer, but it’s also possible that you see the potential of new ideas in other industries as well, and, guess what, we’re right here for you.
What's in it for me?
Research shows that companies which focus on developing innovation cultures end up with a more engaged workforce, higher performance and increased rate of employee creativity output. All it takes is leveraging what you already have.
Where do we start?
We usually start the process with a free diagnosis of a current state of an innovation culture at an organization. Then, usually, a short presentation workshop takes place, during which we engage the organization about the value of creativity and innovation, both in private lives and business, and we present the diagnostic report. After that, we seek a buy-in from the company and establish a vision for a project to build a new culture of innovation.
What do I do now?
If you’re interested in what we have to offer, drop us a line (the contact form is on the right), or call us to arrange a meeting. We’d be glad to tell you more about the idea of Freenovation.
