Building an Innovative Organization: The Role of Training and Development
ASTD Research, in collaboration with subject matter expert Claude Legrand, examine innovation in organizations exclusively from the point of view of T&D in the report Building an Innovative Organization: The Role of Training and Development. This study looks at the responses of 396 T&D professionals across all industries and organization sizes from a survey administered in September of 2013, and includes a foreword and “Recommendations to Start Training for Innovation” from Legrand. Nearly all respondents (98 percent), strongly agree or agree that innovation is important for the future success of their organization. However, only 19 percent of survey participants indicated working for a very innovative organization.
