One of the big projects we’ve been working on at IL over the past year has been building tools, templates, and other resources to help people working on innovation in large organizations. We’ve created PowerPoint presentations, spreadsheets, idea scorecards, a glossary of terminology, and many others. We’re excited to collect them for the first time in this 50-page report.

Everything in this report has benefitted from input from our community of corporate innovation, strategy, and R&D leaders. And some of these resources have been created by people who have been in one of those roles, like Aaron Proietti (formerly an SVP of Innovation at Transamerica) and Rachael Schwartz (formerly a VP of Product Management and Innovation at Keurig).

This report is sponsored by HYPE Innovation, one of Innovation Leader's strategic partners, and includes advice from Jennifer Dunn, Director of Customer Success on "How Not to Fail: A Visual Tool for Managing Your Innovation Program."

This report is for Innovation Leader members only. To learn more about becoming a member, please email, or visit
