To ensure that your organisation moves forward towards your vision, goals and objectives, you must create an organisational culture that values and supports innovation, change and growth.
Organisational culture is discussed in more detail here, however, it basically refers to the values, attitudes and behaviours that are deeply ingrained into all aspects of the organisation, including the staff.
To develop an innovative culture, you will need to encourage and value feedback and suggestions from others, including team members, service users and their families. You should recognise that these people have unique experiences of how your organisation delivers care and have expertise in this regard. Therefore, their views should be taken seriously and acted upon, where necessary.
