To effectively answer these questions, your organization needs high-quality innovation performance measurement.
Done well, measurement provides the discipline and yields the sustained support your innovation function needs to deliver exceptional results. “Done well” being the operative words!
Effective innovation measurement encompasses everything from optimizing your portfolio allocation, to comparing your innovation performance to peers and competitors. It means robust practices for measuring both the routine development project and the notoriously difficult front end project. It can be difficult to get it all right. So we built a tool to help.
Confident that you’re already doing all of those things right? Great! Use the assessment to be sure. We’ve spent a year talking to innovation leaders and looking at the measurement practices of high-performing companies. What we’ve learned is built into the tool.
