This post in Management Issues just baffled me. Consider this:
"In fact, four out of 10 of the 500 employees surveyed said that innovation is either a long shot for their company or a mere "buzz word" the company would like to embrace."
"According to research carried out in 2010 by the Nielsen Company, organizations with less senior management involvement in the new product development process generate 80 per cent more new product revenue than those with heavy senior management involvement."
"A culture of innovation will support ideas coming from any individual, any level and sometimes from unusual places in the organization."
I rest my case. Do you now get why organizations need to be more human friendly?
