Without leadership, training and rewards, innovation will not happen. This chapter from the 7th annual edition of the Innovation in Magazine Media World Report looks at the culture within a company and how it is key to success.
Without a leader who creates a culture that encourages and rewards innovation, creativity, and risk-taking, no one will feel safe enough or empowered enough to risk failing. Nothing will change because change will have no champions.
The editors of the 2016-2017 Innovation Report, John Wilpers and Juan Señor include a 10-step CEO guide to create an innovation friendly culture, four recommendations about how to decide what innovations to pursue, and a model for change.
The 7th annual Innovation in Magazine Media 2016-2017 World Report - which you can order here - delivers proven strategies and tactics for the hottest, more important areas in publishing today: native advertising, mobile, video, data, ad blocking, micropayments, distributions platforms and trend spotting.
