Growth through people

Growth through people can take numerous forms: engaging supporters to diffuse an idea or innovation beyond organisational boundaries; spinning-out organisations to grow a field or sector; or growing an organisation’s innovative capacity by investing in the professional development of staff. There is a central role for academies, apprenticeships and training programmes. One example is Everdale in Canada, a farm established to provide the next generation of organic farmers in the state of Ontario.
