The Innovation Readiness tool focuses on three areas
Assesses strategic alignment, resource allocation and the business portfolio.
focuses on team empowerment, access to resources and the incentive system for innovation.
Measures the tools, processes and skills training to support innovation. We initially created the self assessment tool to help organizations learn from each other. The main focus is on assessing how successful a company is at innovating consistently — rather than running one-off innovation projects.
At the moment, companies are jumping in feet first, looking to innovate before they’ve done the work to assess their level of readiness to nurture innovation and build the right internal structures and environment.
We were motivated to iterate this tool to help companies assess their innovation readiness, and we hope it will help you and your team think thoughtfully about your preparedness for innovation, so you can jump in with your eyes wide open.
