Teams and innovation
Allowing teams of employees to work collaboratively and with a high degree of autonomy has consistently been found by our research to be a driver of effective workforces.
Now, also drawing on more than a decade of work on effective teamwork by Professor Mike West and his team at Lancaster University, The Work Foundation will examine the changing nature of teamwork as open innovation changes roles, structures and processes of work organisation, answering these key questions:
- How can organisations instil a robust culture of innovation through more effective teamworking that strengthens the organisation’s innovation ecosystem?
- How does organisational culture need to change in order to support intrapreneurship?
