Are You Innovation-Ready?
Jen Driggs, The Bridgespan Group
Leaders want and need to innovate but few believe their organizations are meeting their innovation aspirations or are set up well to do so. Being innovative, in fact, has become an urgent imperative for those who seek effective approaches to this century’s sizable brood of daunting challenges. What does it take to develop innovation capacity? Join us to discuss the answer to this question and to experience firsthand our diagnostic survey tool and other learning modules to set your organization up to become innovation-ready. Full disclosure: While our research focused on nonprofit organizations, the takeaways are broadly applicable.
