Innovating inside large organizations is not easy. So how do you deliver concrete, tangible impact — over the short-term, medium-term, and long-term?

InnoLead and KPMG have collaborated to create the go-to resource on corporate innovation, based on detailed survey data and interviews with senior executives at Whirlpool, Boeing, Johnson & Johnson, Southern Company, General Motors, and more. (Note: The latest edition of our benchmarking research is the report Benchmarking Innovation Impact 2020.)

Inside, you’ll discover how more than 270 global companies think about innovation funding, staffing, incentives, and metrics. You’ll get the breakdown on how much time and energy they are spending on incremental improvements versus truly transformational, market-changing ideas. You’ll also learn about the top obstacles that corporate innovators encounter, as well as the things they view as key enablers of success.

Whether you are just starting on the journey of creating an innovation program within your organization, or you have one in place that you’re seeking to retool or upgrade, Benchmarking Innovation Impact 2018 is the essential resource.

Here’s what you’ll find within the 80-page report:

  • Data From Innovators: Our review of the data from a 2018 survey of 270 corporate innovators — including lots of charts and graphs.
  • Corporate Perspectives:  Perspectives from corporate innovators at companies like J&J, Fidelity, and Ericsson about how to deliver impact.
