With the major challenges facing our country and indeed, our planet, companies have had to innovate and take on more risk if they wish to remain competitive.
Innovative companies recognize that it is imperative for them to relook at their training and capacity building initiatives to ensure they’re designed to empower, strengthen and develop their human capital.
Innovation is change that unlocks new value. It refers to changing processes or creating more effective processes, products and ideas. For businesses, this could mean implementing new ideas, creating dynamic products or improving your existing services.
Some of the benefits will include
- Increased profitability and stakeholder return
- Cross-functional support for cultural change
- Stronger employee buy-in and commitment to company goals and objectives
- Conflict mediation and resolution
Innovation is key. Only those who have the agility to change with the market and innovate quickly will survive in a rapidly changing economic environment.
