How to create a culture of innovation and growth in tech

Does your company enable or block innovation? How can you create a culture where innovation is part of the DNA and how does this work virtually? Well, here at Laughology, our FREE webinar is ready to introduce you to some ideas that are simple but effective, to make sure innovation is no joke in your organisation.

Linking innovation and tech seems like a natural match, but technology doesn’t equal innovation and that’s where tech companies can sometimes get stuck. Technology can be used to implement innovation, but the technology itself doesn’t produce innovation. So what can be done to promote ways of working that encourage innovation and growth in tech?

Innovation has never been more important than it is right now. The threat of digital disruption demands that organisations constantly take a fresh look at what they do—but standard corporate protocol tends to frustrate innovation, rather than encourage it.

Hierarchy and rules tend to dominate many organisations, but especially in tech, where regulations are enforced for protection and safety around data. However these are the very things that get in the way of innovative ways of working, new ideas and creativity.

People worry about making mistakes and trying out new ideas in case they break the rules but breaking the rules is what disruption is all about.

Now we’re not saying get rid of all the regulations that keep you safe. We love a data breach policy as much as the next person. It’s about giving people enough self-rule to think differently. By understanding some of the constraints inadvertently put on independent thinking and by being more playful and using humour, we can start to create cultures that encourage challenge, curiosity, and freedom of thought.

Taking you through ideas and thinking that is helpful to innovation, this webinar will look at how humour is a powerful tool for encouraging new ideas.

Laughology’s Stephanie Davies will share:

Ways to create teams where innovation and creativity flourishes, so that everyone feels confident to share their ideas
How to use play, curiosity, humour and laughter to promote independent thinking and disruption
What’s needed to encourage a culture where people share ideas and think differently, so you can begin to embed your own
Why feedback and feedforward are key to growth and innovation, so that you feel equipped to do both of these strategies effectively
Stephanie works with some of the top organisations and teams on innovation, such as Tesco, O2, 3StepIt, NatWest and many more.

So if you’re in the tech or telecommunications industry, don’t miss out! Grab your seat today. But be prepared to think differently – only those serious about play need attend.
