The ability to generate new ideas, see opportunities and solve problems

The foundation of idea culture is a positive attitude towards change. It’s a way of working for the whole organization, not only for management or an individual team. Idea culture is an attitude that unites the whole organization.

Idea culture means for us: 

  • Continuous search for new opportunities.
  • Positive attitude towards different points of view and creativity of individuals.
  • Operations that encourage idea generation and innovation that activate all members of the organization.

Idea culture produces better results and increases work satisfaction

Idea culture is not only about generating ideas. Essential part is the implementation so that the organization makes sure that the selected ideas are well implemented. Sometimes it’s the habit of try and fast fail, but most importantly employees need to experience that ideas are also implemented in practice. It’s a work culture that accepts failures. Idea culture builds true competitive advantage to your company by producing better results* and increasing work satisfaction.
