Why does Captain think it's important to innovate management principles and practices?
Our history so far also strengthens us in our commitment to continuous innovation,which enables us to meet our customers’ requirements in an ever-increasing quality in more and more areas, while we can also improve cost-efficiency. In my understanding innovation means a kind of similar capacity for survival in the business like in the nature, and therefore it receives top priority in management principles and practices. Namely this capacity or in other words readiness for change of an organization makes possible its adaptation to the fast changing environment and business success. It’s not an accident that recently the change management programs enjoy popularity in the organizational development, and also became a key competence skills (it’s also called agility ) for the manager, which we also assess with the help of CAPTain Online.
Why does Captain think it's important to offer recognition to management pioneers?
We’ve been knowing each other with the founders of Management Innovator Society since the very beginning and highly appreciate their activities, and when we heard about this new initiative, it was no question for us to join them as a partner and support the Management Innovation Awards.
