2014-2019: 5 years of Innovation Chronicle in the DRH & M Review, advocacy for the dimension of relationship and human resources of innovation

Innovation is also about relationships and human resources!

5 years of “Innovation” column RH & M

At the time when a 2nd Boeing crashed in less than 6 months and for the same (incredible!) announced reason “cancellation of training of pilots to new types of order for cost reasons” (Reuters 03-10-19), I was publishing a review of my 5 years of columns on the human dimension of innovation, a plea on the need to involve HR in innovation!

This connection applies to the men and the cultural representations of the company “Culture innovation between legacy and Digital the HR manager of the past and the future“.
