Culture & Innovation Assessment and Action Planning Process
We offer our proprietary Innovation Diagnostic as the first step in developing the mindset, culture and capabilities of an innovation organization. The diagnostic re:Route™ is a rigorous, deep-dive assessment of an organization’s willingness and ability to culturally transform and continuously innovate. Working with senior leaders and a cross section of the rest of the organization we measure the key elements that are essential for creating and leading an innovative organization.
- Using the survey results and individual interviews we prepare a comprehensive written report that includes an in-depth analysis of the data collected, including a dashboard of organization culture and capabilities, an inventory of key barriers to innovation and facilitators of innovation, and implications for action.
- Read-out of the survey results with the CEO/senior leader and provide a framework & common language for what it takes to build an organization able to continuously innovate. Discussion about how to conduct step 2.
The second step is to conduct a one-day facilitated discussion of action planning based on the survey results. Read-out of the survey results with the CEO/senior leader & extended leadership team and provide a framework and common language for what it takes to build an organization able to continuously innovate. Explore how current leadership mindset aligns with innovation needs. Determine where the organization is relative where it wants to be. Develop a roadmap for organizational transformation including changes in leadership mindset, culture and capabilities.
The third step involves taking the roadmap and determining what steps are needed to implement the changes necessary to build an innovative organization. Typical action steps include team and individual coaching related to the areas identified in the survey that need strengthening, and areas that can be leveraged. In some cases, innovation coaching on an urgent business issue is undertaken within the context of real work settings, including team meetings or in the design of an innovation engine.
