Build Your Innovation Skills
We are living in an ever connected world where the only constant is change. Organizations and individuals need to innovate to stay ahead, yet there is a lack of understanding on how innovation can be increased. While there are actions an organization can take to promote innovation, there are also activities an individual can do to increase innovation.
This session focuses on what individuals in an organization can do to be one of the innovators. Ms. Erdebil will explore:
• How you can create and increase a culture of innovation
• How you can establish and build skills to be innovative
• How you can develop inspiration and generate innovative solutions
• How you can sell innovation within your organization
