Building effective innovation teams by starting with personality…

The Challenge

Australia Post is highly innovation-focused, constantly building innovation capability within its teams and looking to uncover new opportunities for growth and to connect with the Australian community.

To assist, Australia Post asked TALY to show them how personality links to innovative performance, and how this information can be used to build strong team and to help individuals to think more innovatively on a daily basis.


The Solution

Any solution in innovation must start with the organisational strategy. TALY tested the team to develop an understanding of the base team, innovation attributes and team mapping. We used this insight to build a bespoke intrapreneurship and innovation profiling tool, customised to the needs of the organisation.

TALY then worked with the team to identify the gaps between an innovative culture and their existing culture and the structural and behavioural barriers that stood in their way. Finally, TALY delivered a full day training program that focused on not just the fundamental innovation process but also incorporated learnings on the individual and the organisation at each stage.

The Impact

Key projects defined through the innovation process are still proceeding through the organisation however all of these projects have been built from human design principles with teams working more effectively together.
