What is an innovation mindset?

The reality of day-to-day organizational work is that we tend to rely on typical strategies to achieve outcomes. An innovation mindset challenges key ideas about the traditional ways of working in social sector organizations, the importance of asking challenging questions and gathering data to better understand the complexity of social sector work, and the need to view all the components of social sector work - such as relationships, working spaces, and language - as important outcomes.
