Summary: Innovation is a key component to boosting organisation performance in which Singapore has focused attention on for the productivity. But the truth is that not many companies had done so as they consciously or in consciously had put up a barrier to it. this barriers are not only is found in Asia but also in the UK. It is hard to foster an innovative spirit due to our Asian culture such as the problem with merit. In Singapore the dear of failure could also be another that lead to a barrier to innovation.
Opinion: In my opinion, if organisation would really want to boost their performance, they should change their way and remove the barrier to innovation. Only through innovation than would organisation performance be boost. Bosses should encourage their workers to be innovative and have resources given to them to be innovative.
