LMB mobilizes Innovation Team
To further improve the quality of services offered while keeping in mind the needs of the public, the Land Management Bureau (LMB) created its Innovation Team, with the approval of Acting Director Emelyne V. Talabis, and members comprised of Division Chiefs and select officers with the intention to create new and creative ideas to deliver top-notch service innovations and to streamline processes as well.
In its first meeting, Engr. Henry Pacis delivered a meaningful presentation on the importance of innovation in the workplace and how to encourage and develop innovative thinking on employees while maintaining a workable environment. Atty. Norlito Eneran, Chief of the Legal Division emphasized the invaluable suggestions of Guy Kawasaki’s The Art of Innovation.
The team are expected to meet in a monthly basis with the intention of building the creative culture and developing capacity-building that will contrive a progress not only extending to each one’s division but to the whole of the LMB as well. Making August an “Innovation Month” will serve as a kick-off activity. An idea of a friendly competition between divisions is being deliberated to foster good working relations and produce quality output.
Proposed activities include an essay-writing competition about innovation, the creation of different committees and the installation of the freedom board or an innovation corner. Focal persons per division were elected to oversee their own activities.
To continuously monitor the progress and plans of the LMB innovation team, a schedule of activities for August and the rest of the year is underway.
