When and why conduct a new assessment of your organisation’s innovative culture?
Culture is usually blamed for the lack of innovation in any enterprise. But, is your enterprise ready for innovation? Do you know your enterprise strengths and weaknesses – people, processes, metrics, values, behaviors and climate? InnoQuotient assessment exposes your bright spots and road blocks. It will help executives to understand your enterprise’s cultural reality. Based on this, your leaders can prioritize, set goals, develop action plans and execute projects to transform your people and your enterprise toward a more innovative culture. In this article, we explain when a firm needs to carry out a new assessment for your enterprise Innovative Culture.
When to re-diagnose the innovative culture of your organization?From our experience, we advise repeating the assessment in the following situations:
- After having carried out different milestones in this transformation process, so that we can observe the changes in the perception of employees, especially the assessments of those departments or hierarchical areas in which they are working; and to be able to adjust based on the results the action plans to increase their impact.
- In a merger or takeover process, to fine-tune action plans and assess the impact of these changes on the company's culture. In this case, we advise taking a measurement of the two companies prior to the merger, and the second measurement after a prudent period of time following the merger.
- During a crisis, whether global (as was the case with COVID) or particular to a sector or even a crisis specific to the organization. In this case, the analysis will allow us to see how the crisis affects the perception of culture and which areas we need to strengthen. We will also understand how we are coping with the crisis, which gives us tools to navigate it.
