when a Leadership Practice is not present or working in your organization...
you will not be able to BEST organize your organization
Nurturing and rewarding innovation is a problem solving process for encouraging and rewarding all Associates to seek opportunities that benefit the organization and to encourage innovation. Typically this process is applied to group projects cutting across internal organizational boundaries. In LP25, Associates are encouraged to seek opportunities for innovation and to believe that this is their right and their responsibility. Furthermore, for such projects, the organization establishes a one-time reward for the project team based on anticipated results, which is distributed according to each employee's contribution. Following successful implementation of the solution, additional rewards, based on actual results, are publicly distributed to members of the team.
Professor Kenneth Mackenzie, one of the world's leading experts on leadership and organizational design, has defined 29 Leadership Practices (LP) that are essential to a successful organization.
Clearly, competitive advantage is gained when an organization is aligned for success.
The 29 Leadership Practices are the primary "indicators of interest" we use when diagnosing an organization.
When we do an organizational assessment, we know that the absence of the Leadership Practice Nurturing and Rewarding Innovation could affect one or more of the 12 Holonomic Processes (HP):
HP7. Nurturing and Rewarding Opportunistic and Innovative Problem Solving
The 12 Holonomic Processes are the main enabling processes by which the 6 Desired Organizational Characteristics (DOC) are achieved, so the above Holonomic Processes problems could affect:
DOC4. Successful Goal Achievement
DOC5. Results Oriented Problem Solving

Remember that this "snapshot" is a preliminary assessment only, designed to illustrate areas where you might have problems.
A full on-line assessment probes in a deeper and more complex manner and provides specific insight and suggestions.
The Organizational Diagnostic Survey On-Line (ODS-OL) we use is the most advanced working technology for assessing organizations and its leadership practices. ODS-OL is based on multiple sources of information. ODS-OL does more than compile and analyze data: ODS-OL will derive conclusions about the results of the assessment and then derive recommendations based on these conclusions.
