This transformation from a closed to an open innovation culture will only be successful, if there is buy-in from employees. They are the ones who need to exchange the knowledge and see the benefits of open innovation and knowledge exchange not only for the company, but more importantly for themselves as an individual. Only with employees who have an Open Innovation Mindset and who are willing to exchange knowledge, open innovation can be enabled.
We can support you with developing an Open Innovation Mindset across your organization through a scientific-based mindset development program (see our process). We have developed an HR strategy across the three levels of an organization (organization, team, individual) along with tailored HR practices such as customized training and coaching sessions.
You like this idea but as a number-driven business owner, you ask yourself how you will ever be able to know whether this will work and if investing in a mindset shift of your employees will eventually pay off? YES! Because we have developed a measurement tool that evaluates the Open Innovation Mindset of your employees and quantifies their development over time so you can actually present the created impact in numbers! On top of this, we track the knowledge exchange performance of the people in real-time and can present you a trend chart which makes it easy for you to track the performance of your open innovation project.
