Based on our research for POLIS we have crated a spherical model of party innovation which follows an open innovation approach.
In this series, we discuss arising challenges when it comes to innovating traditional political parties and how to tackle them.
Innovative ideas can derive from different sources within or outside a political party. But why are some parties better than others at using these ideas to their advantage? Which main areas do leaders and managers of political parties need to look at and manage strategically?
In this article of our series you will learn about fostering innovative ideas and why you need to get the leadership on board.
Any party can be innovative sometimes. But a lucky shot is different from managing ideas systematically and strategically – be they related to policy, to organisational aspects, or to behaviours. The key is to develop an innovation strategy.
