One of the buzzwords that keep coming back in my discussions with clients and colleagues is innovation. Every organisation wants to be innovative. But what is it we’re talking about, and how do you embed a culture of innovation in your business?
It's all about innovation at the moment in Australia. The Federal Government has just released a statement to increase innovation across the board. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Monday that "innovation is a big cultural measure, it is something that we need."
So what is the Government doing? It's announced a step of measures including tax breaks and rebates , limited director liability for start-ups, university funding incentives, visas for special talent, a cyber-security growth centre, a new Government Board to focus on innovation, and a massive financial boost to the CSIRO.
