Corporate Innovation

What Does Innovation Mean to Your Business?

  • Does your organisation need to be innovative to ensure long-term sustainability and success?
  • Is innovation currently used as tool for leadership development?
  • Do your people have the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for contemporary innovation?
  • Does the culture of your organisation foster innovation?
  • Are the systems and processes used by your organisation enabling innovation?
“Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress.”
Ted Levitt


Integral Development is proud to offer a comprehensive innovation program that can help your organisation to answer ‘yes’ to all of the questions above. Our formal qualifications are purpose-built for industry clients and offer individual participants and their organisation the opportunity to apply innovation knowledge, theories and tools directly in the workplace.

An ‘Integral Approach’ to Innovation

Our approach to leadership, management and innovation is best described as integral. Integral Theory has been described as the new paradigm for the 21st century since it provides a new and holistic way of seeing leadership and the purpose of work in organisations. At the core of this framework is Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory.

When looking at innovation the four quadrants translate into intrinsic, extrinsic and systemic dimensions of sound organisational functioning and sustainability. The model incorporates the skills and behaviours of individuals, teams and organisations in terms of leading and managing innovation.The Integral framework is flexible and can be customised to include specific competencies for an organisation’s particular strategic challenges.
