Building a Culture of Innovation

Leaders play a critical role in creating the right culture and the right environment for innovation to flourish. To grow more predictably and survive in today’s digitally disruptive economy, we need to build a culture of innovation. Innovation reduces costs, improves quality, improves team motivation and retention, and delivers more value. Innovation is critical to maintain and grow market presence and requires an agile approach, with in-flight adjustments that keep the program on track with changing conditions.

Leadership Forum provides an excellent opportunity to mid-level and senior leaders with tangible information and insights that can be applied to the company’s organizations, making them more effective at delivering value. Come and join us to learn the latest concepts, strategies and experiences on innovation from other Chicagoland leaders.
