Excerpt from article: 

A CEO we were helping recently shared a disconcerting but all too frequent observation. It was clear to him that the success factors in his industry were shifting and that his firm’s strategy needed to be reexamined. But it was hard to even begin that process. As he put it, ‘Not only do I lack the right answers, my team and I can’t even figure out the right questions!’

He’s not alone; many executives worry that they don’t have a good handle on the unfamiliar dynamics confronting them today – technology-driven transformations, new global contours, changing regulatory requirements and societal expectations – each creating wave upon wave of confounding new issues.

In order to create a culture of innovation in the workplace,an organization must empower their employees to engage in independent thought processes.In  order to do so, employees must first be fully engaged and vested in the success of their company.Open discussion between all levels of the organization must  be encouraged.Companies need to be transparent in order to make their employees feel that they are an integral part of the business process.Lastly,employees must believe that their opinions matter.

Albert Einstein had it right when he said: “We cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”  With that being said it is time for entrepreneurial and small business owner of companies to step up their innovation creativity.


We have big dreamers and ideas that are always seem too left behind. In this article companies and small business revaluated how they allow their employee to make contributes to building a better brand. The question that was explored by most CEO's is, How to make this work environment a more engaging involvement for idea.


Well, some companies do this by creating a designated space where employees can be creative. Most office spaces, which are normally a sea of cubicles, have little room physically and emotionally where creativity and innovation can flourish.


From a PR stand Point that is brilliant idea because for those companies that still have their employee work in cubicles is only limiting them to that confined space. Also making that change in the office space can build a better bond between employee and employer. Provide an opportunity for employee to shine.


In relations to the book this can relate to Chapter 3 employee relations.  Employee Relations involves the body of work concerned with maintaining employer-employee relationships that contribute to satisfactory productivity, motivation, and morale. Essentially, Employee Relations is concerned with preventing and resolving problems involving individuals who arise out of or affect work situations.


So for those companies and business that have your employees still concealed to their cubicle and office space re-think and evaluate the amount of new and creative ideas that your employees produce for the better of the company.on page 33 in the Adventure book Kathryn Yates of Watson Wyatt,  stated "that a business function that drives performance and contributes to a company's financial success,".
