Since we started Innovation Leader, the subject of measuring innovation progress has come up in virtually every interview, off-the-record conversation, and Field Study gathering we’ve had. We’ve collected the best guidance, data, and examples of how innovation executives are measuring and reporting on their progress. Includes examples and insights from Owens-Corning, Whirlpool, Trek, Pitney-Bowes, General Mills, Hershey’s, Lowe’s, eBay, EMC, and more. Also includes a list of the five metrics being used most often today, based on a survey of nearly 200 corporate innovation executives we conducted with our partner Innosight.
