How can one build a good innovation culture or improve the existing one?
Well, you can’t just press any switch to make it work. The Culture itself is a deeply embedded characteristic, an identity characteristic of a system or a person. It has been there for a very long time; so, it is an important part of the identity. The Culture therefore has many aspects and if you want to change culture, you have to be empathetic, tactical and patient.
Should you change a culture at all?
Yes. … e.g. for the sake of progress, efficiency or to be more innovative. We always find positive aspects in every culture that we should be aware of. We will try to respect them and even keep them for the future. Combining the cultures, gaining mutual benefits and thus building a new culture in an organization is the sensible way.
We mostly focus on a good culture of innovation as a specific goal which we strive for.
