Building Innovation Culture: Development Organizations on the Rise

Building Innovation Culture: Development Organizations on the Rise is part of USAID's 2017 Global Innovation Week. Pact CEO Mark Viso will speak on this panel. 

As development organizations evolve to respond to the shifting nature of international development in the 21st century, a culture of innovation becomes critical. Organizations that promote creativity, agility, risk-taking and new forms of collaboration will be best poised to respond to the changing context of development and to scale innovative solutions. During this panel, leaders of development organizations from the Donor and partner community will share their experiences and lessons in encouraging a robust culture of innovation and enabling their staff to function as “intrapreneurs”, and their organizations to effectively respond to the change context of development practice. They will discuss what mindset, capacities and skills are increasingly needed by development professionals, the role of leadership, what tactics have been successful in fostering innovation, collaboration and adaptive learning in their organization, how they overcome challenges associated with organizational change and the future of role of innovation in the development industry.
