A high-skilled workforce is conditio sine qua non for a high quality of life and economic growth in an ever competitive environment. Vocational education and training institutes often apply teaching methodologies which are out-dated or lack relevance for the labor market needs. The paper analysis how innovative processes can improve the quality of vocational training services. The culture of an organization impacts the degree to which creative, innovative solutions to problems are encouraged and implemented. Promising tools are the support for "innovation teams" and failure-tolerance as well as recruiting trainers with practical, cross-cultural background and skills. Innovative delivery of vocational education and training is also needed to forge stronger linkages between VET and private industries.
