The video above is a recording of our recent webinar on Innovation Teams.

In conjunction with SPACE Consulting*, OE Cam has completed pan-european research to explore the critical human factors in the innovation process and understand the implications for leaders, teams and culture.  The research report, “Human DNA in Innovation” was launched on Thursday 24th November at the first of three webinars and focused on how you build three core capabilities of teams to improve innovation:

  • Balancing individuals and teams – how do you identify the right profiles, recruit the best talent, ensure diversity and allow the right amount of freedom to encourage innovation?
  • Stimulating team environments – how do you create the necessary supportive conditions for innovation teams to thrive?
  • Promoting Innovation Architects – this newly emerging role helps remove the internal barriers to innovation. Who are they and how do you manage them?

People selected must have a unique blend of competences and interpersonal skills as pointed out by the CEO of a Danish Pharma company. “They should be able to deal with the unknown.  Be sensitised to global innovation issues and have a ‘can do’/positive mind-set”

All attendees received a full copy of “Human DNA in Innovation” research report, to download the Executive Summary please click here.
