Factors Hamper Innovation
 
Rosabeth Kanter has developed a list of ten types of attitudes that stifle creative and innovative attempts or disposition of the people in the organization. Such attitudes will have a dampening effect on organizational creativity and innovation. An understanding of the following points may help you avoid getting into the trap.
 
--   Viewing any new idea from below with suspicion- because it is new, and because it is from below.
 
--   Insisting that people who need our approval to act first go through several other levels of management to get their signatures.
 
--   Asking departments or individuals to challenge and criticize each other’s proposals.
 
--   Expressing criticism freely and withholding praise where it is due. (Keeping the people on their toes). Creating a fear psychosis among people that they can be fired at any time.
 
--   Treating identification of problems as signs of failure in order to discourage people from letting you know when something in their area is not working.
 
--   Controlling everything carefully. Make sure people count anything that can be counted frequently.
 
--   Making decisions to reorganize or changing the policies in secret, and springing them on people unexpectedly.
 
--   Making sure that requests for information are fully justified, and making doubly sure that it is not given out to managers freely.
 
--   Assigning to lower-level managers, in the name of delegation and participation, responsibility for figuring out how to cutback, layoff, move people around, or otherwise implementing the threats you have thrown around.
 
--   And above all, never forget that you the higher - ups, already know everything important about this business.
