Our research shows that innovation performance is enhanced by the development of an innovation culture.
The components of a culture of innovation are:
- A set of values that support innovation
- Leader behaviours that encourage and support innovation
- Resources mobilised to support innovation
- Internal organisational processes enabling effective management of innovation
- An innovation climate characterised by collaboration and creativity
With these elements in place, innovation performance is improved.
This micro-accelerator provides a tool to diagnose your current organisation’s innovation culture and provides strategies and interventions to reduce barriers and increase innovation.
With 4 years of applied research, and funding from the Queensland Government and Mining 3, Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for METS Business Innovation (CMBI) has developed this micro-accelerator to support our mining and METS sector.

Building an Innovation Culture
Who should attend?
Managers or leaders within METS businesses who wish to develop or enhance the current innovation culture within their business. Leaders may be responsible for the entire business, large or small, or for one work unit within a business.
Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for METS Business Innovation (CMBI) identifies the business, organisational, management and ecosystem dynamics that can potentially inhibit the adoption of new technologies in the METS and mining sector. Using evidence-based research, CMBI co-develop with industry and government, solutions that will drive value creation around these new technologies. In doing so, they address the major challenges for technology transformation in the METS sector.
