This weekend I came across an interesting job posting: Innovation Facilitator.
Måltidets hus (Norwegian Centre of Expertise: NCE Culinology) is hiring an innovation guru.
“The Innovation Facilitator will be a driving force and coordinator for innovation. In the area of industrial gastronomy, starting with consumer insight, process optimalization and open innovation”. By Norwegian standards, this is pretty radical. Here we see a public organization running innovation programs, developing open innovation processes and actively facilitating innovation processes. This job posting is far ahead of most comparable private firms in the area. Many of them could learn from this.
It’ll be exiting to follow this job as it get s filled. CEO Ellen S. Math Henrichsen is running an interesting innovation hub at http://www.nceculinology.no/index.cfm
