Culture: international experience and innovation

Via life2.0 I found the post: are you a lulu? The company is seeking smart, creative, energetic, web-savvy people and have developed this quiz to find innovative people.

I'm happy with the 'have you studied or lived abroad' and 'are you multilingual' as an appreciation for what this does to your capacity to see other patterns. On the other hand there is a huge number of people who have studied or lived abroad, and I wonder if this automatically enhances innovative skills.

But most of all, this brings me to my deep conviction that you can have a company full of innovative people, if the organisational culture does not favour innovation, these people will just be frustrated. (hm, how do I know?)
