This presentation discusses the main, new challenges faced by companies operating in highly regulated business sectors – such as e.g. Biopharmaceuticals - when engaging in innovation. It is proposed that there are fundamental challenges such as:
• increased depth of multidisciplinary working demanded due to increasingly complicated therapeutic systems
• insufficient attention paid to non-technical skills (softer, psychological, aspects)
• low probability of success through implementing a top-down or bottom-up approach, rather than both at once
• a feeling of being a small part of a big system, with little empowerment or control
• innovation change programs taking a generic approach, not optimized to the national culture, corporate culture, local team and individual-specific orientations • excessive focus on a top-down scheme addressing the organization at a concept level, rather than demonstrating successful innovation deliverables within functional teams
• lack of on-going individual and team coaching to ensure permanent, embedded, change. It will be discussed that organizations in highly regulated industries seeking greater innovation can benefit from an approach tailored to and taking into consideration a culture change program that covers the discussed challenges.
