Successful Innovation Behaviors

Written by Burt on 29 December 2010 No Comment
In Scott Anthony’s post, “Three Year-End Innovation Takeaways from Asia” he talks about the human side of innovation. From his blog post:
Increasingly, I’ve heard people at large companies ask how to create human resource systems that support innovation. The first thing I tell them is to make sure they aren’t following policies that penalize innovation, particularly policies that punish prudent risk taking. But that’s obviously not enough. We need to figure out how to create more systematic ways to track, measure, and reward people following behaviors consistent with successful innovation. We need to make sure we have systems that balance short and long term performance. Finally, we need to develop training programs that give leaders the necessary skills to master the paradoxes that increasingly appear on management’s agenda.
I’m hoping to read more about the systematic ways to track, measure, and reward people that are walking the path of successful innovation. Does anyone have insight into what their companies are doing to reward innovative behaviors? If so drop us a comment, I’m curious to hear what’s out there. Thanks!
