Mattel approached Bettina after they had identified innovation as a main driver for achieving the company’s ambitions growth targets. They had recognised that a successful quest for (more) innovation would required a shift in the prevailing mindset which, as in so many organisations, was focused on cost cutting, efficiency improvements and risk avoidance. Bettina proposed a 3-pronged approach that would help to create an innovative organisation – rather than one with pockets of innovation: starting at the top to create and shared understanding and vision, engaging middle managers in identifying projects that would facilitate their buy-in, and involving all staff in the execution of these projects.
