Chinese Translation of Creating the Innovation Culture

Another white paper of Langdon’s – Creating the Innovation Culture – has recently been translated into Chinese. The need for leaders to develop an innovation culture is becoming more universally accepted. Such a culture can be recognized as an organization that is known externally in the marketplace as a genuine innovator, and equally that it is known internally among the people in the organization as a dynamic, innovation-friendly place to be.

This white paper is designed to answer questions about creating such a culture if one doesn’t already exist. In addition, Langdon answers the following questions:

  • How do organizations develop an innovation culture?
  • Who should be involved in the innovation process?
  • What roles should they play?
