Innovation is the ultimate key to success! If you cannot innovate, get ready to be left behind in the race by your competition. Leaders and CEOs often ask us, “How do you innovate at CEPTES?” “Can you plan an innovation?” and “Can we train our employees to innovate?”
At CEPTES, we firmly believe that the company’s culture has a lot to do with the innovation taking place there. So, it would help if you create a culture that encourages your employees to innovate. In other words, innovation inspires innovation. Let me put it! When one employee starts sharing innovative ideas with other team members, it triggers a chain reaction with the employees where each employee becomes an inspiration for the other to innovate. Only an organization that nurtures such an environment can think innovative, create innovation, and stand out from the rest.
At CEPTES, there’s no secret formula as such. All we’ve done is refined our thinking in a manner where we adapt & apply ideas that we genuinely believe to be great and worthy of being implemented at any level across the organization. Let’s discuss a few principles that lead to innovation and how we, at CEPTES, apply them here.
Innovation Demands Ten Times Improvement
Every idea may sound great initially but may fail if you don’t test it before implementing it. Many arguments can turn out to be innovations with ten times or more improvement. Our Salesforce experts at CEPTES know this, and they focus on delivering highly reliable and scalable Salesforce solutions for a wide range of industry verticals. Since the beginning, over a decade ago, we have been focusing on innovation so that our valued clients get solutions that help them stand out and excel in the competition. By pushing our employees to rework and rethink their ideas at least ten times or more, we help them become confident and sharp innovators and think beyond the ordinary.
Launch & Listen
At CEPTES, we believe that any idea needs to be tested in the real-world before being implemented on a large-scale. With a minimum viable product (MVP), you can do this beta testing and see how the solution works for your staff and customers before making a heavy investment for developing a fully-fledged solution. This exercise works wonders, and you can use it for testing if the customers/targeted audiences like your idea or not. Then, later on, you can expand it further to accommodate your growing business needs. We did the same when we started years ago. We launched the MVPs and then made rapid, ongoing iterations based on our customers’ feedback. This is how we attained expertise in the domain.
Share and Help Others Innovate As Well
Do you have a great idea? Don’t keep it to yourself! Share with your team and inspire them too to innovate! At CEPTES, we encourage innovation through collaboration. Everyone can share ideas and information openly. The more information you share, the more innovative ideas will be born! We ensure complete transparency during the process to get recognition and appreciation for their creative ideas and thinking.
Bring Innovators Together
We hire people with unique approaches to problem-solving and a natural inclination towards innovative thinking. When these innovators work together in close coordination, the result is an environment filled with more innovators who inspire others. Our goal is to help every employee here think out-of-the-box and develop ideas that resonate in the industry. Hence, hiring the right team matters a lot here. However, it doesn’t mean that we hire people who have done significant innovations in their previous jobs or academics. Instead, our screening process is designed to help us find people who welcome change, love challenges, and are open to criticism because if we cannot hear about our flaws, we’ll never improve.
At CEPTES, we believe that ideas don’t always come from within! Instead, they are scattered all over the world. All you need to do is look around with innovators’ specs to dig & use them for your purpose. And, collaboration and continuous encouragement to innovation can lead to an environment where everyone is enthusiastic and excited about innovation and doesn’t feel like it’s a task they need to complete anyhow.
So, if you too have that hidden innovator in you, CEPTES is where you must be. Join us!
