Corporate innovators need metrics to show where they’re delivering impact, and ideally, to gain access to additional resources. But measuring innovation is much more challenging than measuring on-going operations, since by definition it is about exploration and experimentation — and failure is not only an option, it’s part of the journey.

For this third installment of our “Innovation Illustrated” series, we collaborated once again with the renowned visual thinking firm XPLANATIONS.
