“Innovation Ecosystem Metrics”

Is our innovation strategy working? How can we compare our efforts to our competitors? How do we measure progress on our 10-year innovation strategy today?

Although we know we need it, it’s hard to measure innovation and even harder to prove that we’re making progress. When the next downturn comes, we may find our innovation funding cut off unless we can justify our budgets. Return on Investment (ROI) is useless, but are there any proven alternatives?

In this hands-on workshop, each person will define metrics and a dashboard for measuring their innovation ecosystems. This workshop is for you if you are, like me, responsible for designing or managing innovation in your organization.
