Our Approach

 

ACHIEVING SELF-SUSTAINING INNOVATION

SIT’s vision is to help people design and implement a long-term culture of innovation in their company or organization. In support of this goal, SIT helps create an impactful program of innovation that runs across teams and departments to transform the organization, while promoting its strategic goals.

SIT’S 3 INNOVATION PILLARS MODEL

Our program is based on SIT's organizational innovation model. This model consists of 3 Innovation Pillars, which – when combined – provide the framework for impactful innovation:


  • Results – innovation activities that generate tangible innovative projects which create immediate return-on-innovation.
  • Skills – providing employees with the skills required to think innovatively and manage innovation in the organization.
  • Structures – putting in place a plan that supports a culture of innovation including management involvement and commitment, as well as cross organizational understanding and cooperation.

Each of the program's activities will contain elements from all three pillars, although one of the pillars will typically be dominant at a given time. For example, initially we are more likely to focus on creating immediate and midterm results to achieve a quick ROI (Return on Innovation), but this will also create the engagement to drive the innovation buzz and momentum, and supply participants in the project with practical tools for innovative thinking.

"It was important for me to bring something more methodological, to bring a process to those who don’t sit in front of an ocean view. SIT are attuned to our needs and try to understand the complexity of our organization to build the right solution for us. It feels like our goals are their goals, as though they are a part of our organization." Orli Remez, Learning & Development Business Partner, HP Software


HOW WE DO IT – APPLYING SIT'S INNOVATION MAP

Underpinning all our work is the SIT Innovation Map which pulls together our academically derived methodology, as well as our cumulative learning and work experience of furthering innovation globally since 1996. This map includes the tools, principles, skills, proficiencies, and activities needed to help companies and the people in them to achieve their personal and business innovation objectives.
