When leaders attempt to improve the levels of innovation in their organisations, they undertake a change process that is iterative and that affects many different elements of their organisation. The strategy, the culture and the operations must change.

We have three offers to assist leaders with this transformation.

Individual leader coaching: Here we focus on helping a leader think through their organisational strategy, their innovation strategy, their portfolio of improvement projects and how their organisation nurture knowledge accumulation.

Team coaching: Here we focus more on improving dialogue between different functions, different expertise and different areas in the organisation. Team coaching focuses on joint sense making and improving the way the organisation searches for and discovers options to improve its adaptiveness and resilience.

Inter organisation coaching: Here we focus on helping different organisations to collectively search for and discover their innovation potential. More attention is paid to joint search and discovery, unlocking synergy and overcoming shared constraints. We draw on our experience of strengthening innovation systems and building knowledge dissemination networks.

These three offers all draw on our experience of working with organisational change, promoting innovation, strategic competitiveness and resilient innovation systems.

I love facilitating thinking and reflection session with teams. However, there is one kind of request that I often decline, and that is a request to facilitate an annual innovation strategy rethink. I get many such requests towards the end of the year as organisations start thinking of the coming year and their “agenda” for …
