In order to be an innovative organization, you shouldn´t have to depend solely on a reduced inside think tank. Nowadays, every company has the opportunity to gain new ideas from any person in any part of the world; it´s just a matter of building a culture that is ready to act upon those ideas. So, how is it possible to foster innovation within your company culture knowing you don´t have all the talent within? We will present the challenges we face to innovate and how we should make sure the company can nurture a culture to remain competitive by tapping in both internal and external people.
