Influence Cultures that Drive Innovation!

Have you ever struggled to gain adoption of your innovation efforts? Have you had the organizational anti-bodies torpedo your good work? Do you struggle to gain alignment around your innovation programs? You are not alone. These are the greatest challenges that innovators face in nearly all large organizations.

The solutions seem elusive and it isn’t about better ideas, bigger budgets, or more people.

The answer is found in creating a culture that all at once, galvanizes, aligns and supports your efforts; that give you the voice, authority and influence to be noticed, attain powerful alignment and the ability to have smarter conversations.

Gapingvoid’s Culture Science™ methodology developed over the last dozen years measures, designs and executes organizational culture at scale, with a special focus on innovation. Our approaches combine behavioral, management and neuro- sciences, to deliver change in a unique and effective way, harnessing social human behavior to embed and sustain culture.
