Methodology

The INNovaSouth model allows SMEs to enhance their workplace innovation by increasing the employees’ motivation and productivity.

This innovative methodology is based on a matrix of best practices related to the four fundamental pillars that are drivers of innovation:

  • jobs and teams;
  • organisational structures, management and procedures;
  • employee driven improvement and innovation;
  • co-created leadership and horizontal structure.

For each of these categories, 5 workplace innovation practices are identified, according to the duration of their implementation and distinguishing between practices that can be carried out free of charge and those that involve an outlay of money.

MANUAL

The Online Manual of Good Practices on Workplace Innovation is a useful tool for those SMEs that need practical advice on possible innovation actions to implement within their companies to improve their organisational processes and increase their competitiveness.
It will include inspiring case studies to give an idea to SMEs owners and employees on possible concrete actions to undertake.

Within the Manual of Good Practices, the SMEs will find a selection of workplace innovation practices relevant to the four main pillars,
along with an interactive self-evaluation questionnaire that allows them to identify their specific needs.
