Learning outcomes
  • Understand the purpose and outcomes of the survey tool
  • Conduct an analysis of the gap between self-assessment and job-assessment scores (for each pillar and in total)
  • Generate action plans for each of the four skills pillars

Innovation is...

“Creativity is thinking up new things.

Innovation is doing new things.”

Theodore Levitt

what is workforce innovation
What is workforce innovation?
  • Innovation is “the conscious exploitation of ideas leading to a new or modified product, process or service which adds economic and/or social value”
  • Innovation is “a broad organisational issue, requiring mobilisation of a constellation of resources, activities and people”

The development of the IBSA Workforce Innovation Survey Tool – Phase 1, p. 8; p. 4

the workforce innovation survey tool
The Workforce Innovation Survey Tool
  • Raises awareness and understanding about the skills, attitudes and behaviours individuals and organisations need to be innovative
  • Identifies and analyses the innovation skills found in individuals and required by organisations
  • Assists workplaces and individuals to better match their innovation skills capacities with their needs
the workforce innovation survey tool1
The Workforce Innovation Survey Tool
  • Designed to aid constructive dialogue between organisations and workforce members
  • Designed to be part of strategy employed by organisations to facilitate the successful development, empowerment and alignment of the workforce
  • It is NOT designed as a tool to counsel underperforming people or business units
the workforce innovation survey tool2
The Workforce Innovation Survey Tool
  • The tool helps individuals and organisations identify, understand and assess three essential innovation skill measurements:
    • The extent to which you demonstrate a desired innovation skill
    • The importance of an innovation skill to a particular job or job function
    • The innovation skills gap that exists between the individual and their job function
gap analysis
Gap analysis
  • Your survey results will identify a gap which can either be a:
    • Surplus – i.e. You believe you have innovation skills that are not currently being used in your job; or
    • Deficit – i.e. You believe that you do not have sufficient innovation skills required for your job
  • Gaps can be measured across all four pillars or across any individual pillar
  • The survey tool provides a commentary for each gap with advice on what the possible implications or next steps might be to address the gap
pillar 1 generating ideas
Pillar 1: Generating ideas
  • This pillar is concerned with creativity and continuous improvement skills
  • Examines the match between your personal and natural inclinations in this domain versus those requirements of their job
  • Pillar 1 measures your ‘creativity’ engine
  • Creativity is the starting point of the innovation process
pillar 2 taking calculated risks being entrepreneurial
Pillar 2: Taking calculated risks & being entrepreneurial
  • Involves your skills and behaviours in evaluating the potential success of creative ideas
  • Gives an index of your ‘inclination’ and the job requirement associated with taking calculated risks and being entrepreneurial
  • Looks at whether there is a match or mismatch between risk taking approaches and skills & the degree to which you are entrepreneurial, relative to your job requirements
pillar 3 developing workplace relationship effectiveness
Pillar 3: Developing workplace relationship effectiveness
  • Innovation does not occur in isolated pockets in organisations, but in teams, departments, business units etc.
  • Provides evidence of the level of workplace cooperation relative to job requirements
  • Effective workplace relationships are one of the key factors needed to move innovative ideas forward and turn them into reality
pillar 4 turning ideas into products processes and services
Pillar 4: Turning ideas into products, processes and services
  • Assesses knowledge, attitudes and skills in innovation
  • Is concerned with turning ideas into commercial success through effective implementation
what are the implications
What are the implications?
  • What implications might your total gap score have on...
    • Yourself?
    • Your working groups / teams?
    • Your workplace?
  • What will you do next? Use your action plans.
  • Use this as an ‘a-ha moment’ to identify and address strengths and weaknesses, as well as the development of intervention strategies to improve innovation skills and capabilities

“Innovation – any new idea – by definition will not be accepted at first. It takes repeated attempts, endless demonstrations, monotonous rehearsals before innovation can be accepted and internalized by an organization. This requires courageous practice.”

Warren Bennis
