The Innovators Network is an online network of VA employees and contractors from across the organization. As the second largest department in the government, our colleagues could be an elevator ride away at the VA central office or on the opposite coast. To brainstorm and create the best innovations, we need an easy way to work together.
The Network provides a place for staff to share ideas and challenges as well as provide opportunities to test and validate best practices or other solution sets at pilot locations. Constant collaboration ignites inspiration and keeps innovation at the forefront of our work. And by setting up a space to foster that collaboration, we’re democratizing access to the tools of innovation in new ways.
In addition, the Network serves as a community of interest for VA employees focused on results and organizational transformation. The Network can be a place where employees advise, even mentor others, and it will link creative ideas and creative minds to deliver powerful results.
