Seven Attributes of the Most Innovative Cultures

Extracts from presentaton by Gordon Redding – in INSEAD Knowledge.

The roots of innovation lie in the most basic cultural values.

• Economic units, regardless of ownership, must be capable of scaling up efficiently.
• In the process of scaling up, organisations must keep highly creative and skilled individuals engaged.
• Creative individuals need room to be adventurous.
• Innovators need to share in the profits generated by their creative labour.
• Information must freely flow through the society in a way that fosters learning and collaboration.
• The ruling order must be relied upon to safeguard the wider social good, according to consistent and clearly understood interpretations of the law.
• Neutrality and fairness should prevail in decision-making about risk.
