Creating the Culture for Innovation - A Practical Guide for Leaders

Creating the Culture for Innovation - A Practical Guide for Leaders
“...to drive the degree of change we are seeking…the NHS should focus on tackling the behaviours and cultures in the system that stand in the way…”

 - David Nicholson, Chief Executive of the NHS

Through relatively simple changes in behaviours and leadership processes leaders can assess and enhance their culture for innovation within their organisation.

By their behaviours, leaders create the conditions that either hinder or aid innovation. This guide is a resource for leaders at every level including clinical, managerial and service improvement leads who wish to assess and enhance cultures for innovation in their teams, departments, organisations and systems.

The guide describes the literature base behind the seven dimensions of culture for innovation, gives guidance on applications of the framework, and provides 37 practical tips and examples of ways to enhance the culture for innovation in organisations and systems.

A shorter companion guide for senior leaders, Creating the Culture for Innovation: Guide for Executives is also available from the NHS institute. It provides an overview of the concepts and practical tips for leaders to enable them to support and build an effective innovation culture.

The first 20 of these are free to NHS England. Quantities over 20 copies will be charged per copy.
