In today’s workplace, executives require their teams to provide consistent and outstanding results. One month’s success quickly becomes a benchmark for the next. The question that follows this requirement is “How to sustain such aggressive growth norms”? Where can the “new ideas” keep coming from? It is time to acknowledge that the competitive workplace of today has rendered innovation a necessity, rather than a good-to-have. By definition, innovation is one of the key factors in maintaining sustainable growth and a competitive position for many organizations. The boundaries of Innovation go beyond attitude, mindset and skill sets, resulting in efficient growth opportunities through manageable steps that are measurable, repeatable and achievable.
Navigos Premium and RMIT University are honoured to present – Workplace Innovation in Vietnam, an exploration of the prevalence of innovation in the global workplace, and a discussion of how innovation can gradually be imbibed into corporate DNA locally.
