Engender her in your organization which is the team that will take you to the major leagues.5. Go beyond borders, even your own knowledge. 6. Dare, develop the smell and innovation will come to stay and you will come to love it so much, even just for what it represents in its cash flow.
Every company that has achieved success through innovation develops common attributes such as leadership, cohesion of work teams, satisfaction and competitiveness in highly profitable markets. Colombian companies that have started to develop the ‘Culture of Innovation‘ are the companies that will stand out in the future to sustain the competitiveness, production and development of emerging countries.
