Manufacture Your Day by BEING INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE
Innovation can happen on so many levels and that’s the exciting part. The backbone of our economy in the future will certainly be innovative start-up companies with the drive to change the world as we know it.
From my perspective, I believe that the most overlooked and least understood concept of innovation lies within the development of great ideas from the shop floor. It’s the subtle discipline of making small and effective changes on a continuous basis.
- What would it be like if the corporate culture would fully support employees to constantly look for better ways of doing things?
- Where could we be if more people in management would show a sincere interest in engaging people’s hearts and minds?
- What if we embraced ideas more readily?
- What if we looked at ideas as a new possibility instead of an increase in unnecessary workload?
- Could we delegate the responsibility of making it happen to the people who do the actual job?
Continuous improvement and innovation are a must-have if we want to succeed in our endeavours during this current time.
Step by step, day by day, start evaluating…
- how you do your work.
- how you can do things better.
- if there is a new way of doing things.
The key to creating a culture of innovation is encouragement.
Have you ever wondered why it seems easier to solve other people’s problems and so difficult to solve our own? That’s just how it is, sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees and yet if we look at it from another perspective, we are able to see things we haven’t seen before.
We are so involved in the daily tasks that we start overlooking the big picture. We focus on little, meaningless things that turn out to be very big issues in our minds.
Don’t you think it is time to find a better way?
Creating a culture of innovation requires
- reading about it
- educating yourself
- sharing what you know with others
- having meaningful conversations within your organization and also with your customers and perhaps even competitors
- being interested instead of trying to be interesting
- having the courage to encourage innovation
- listen to the ideas and solutions of the people around you.
It’s in your power to choose.
Food for Thought:
Ask yourself: Am I happy with the status quo, or am I ready, willing and able to embrace a whole new level of energy in the light of innovation?
