Creativity and innovation are critical components of just about every organization. But innovation doesn't pertain only to new inventions, products, or reworked designs. It also involves incremental improvements to the way things are done. Knowing how to build and support an innovative culture is an important skill for any leader to master. The impetus for innovation can come from the top of the organization, and it can come from the people engaged in day-to-day production. Building an innovative culture is a responsibility for leaders and employees across organizational hierarchies.

This course provides you with an understanding of an innovative culture and what qualities a leader needs to best foster innovation. It also provides you with practical techniques for cultivating and leading innovation.
