Creating A Culture Of Innovation

Interesting article this week on the Harvard Business Review about how executives can foster an environment ripe for innovation:

The full essay is worth reading, but here are the 6 recommendations on how to accomplish this in an organization:

1.  Meet People's Needs.
2.  Teach Creativity Systematically.
3.  Nurture Passion.
4.  Make the Work Matter.
5.  Provide the Time.
6.  Value Renewal.

From my own experience, I'd say numbers 3 & 4 were instrumental when I've been in roles where I was truly creative or innovative.
