Everyday Innovation Networking Event

[tweetmeme]City University London and the Work Psychology Group recently completed a research project on ‘Everyday Innovation: How to enhance innovative working in employees and organisations’ This has been published by the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts (NESTA) in collaboration with the Charted Management Institute.

Organisations across the private, public and third sectors are increasingly recognising that innovation is crucial to their productivity and effectiveness, particularly in these tough economic times. Yet many organisations struggle to make innovation a practical day-to-day reality. This report offers several practical examples to show how to promote everyday innovative working at the employee, group, leader and organisational levels.

The findings and recommendations of the report were launched in December 2009 receiving wide interest from a range of organisations. As part of the ongoing wider dissemination, we are hosting an early evening networking event to showcase our findings in an informal setting. If you attended the December launch event, this is an ideal opportunity to follow up on the report since then. If you are yet to see the report, please come to the event to find out more.

Event format: There will be some brief presentations followed by plenty of time for discussion and networking with light refreshments available. We hope you can join us for what we expect to be an exciting and thought-provoking evening.

If you are unable to attend but are interested in this area or discussing the report further, please contact one of the authors at the following addresses Fiona Pattersonand Maura Kerrin
