Innovation groups often get created by fiat, before they’ve developed a strategy. And many companies have existing R&D or product development organizations that would benefit from fresh thinking about their mission.
Whether you’re laying out strategy for the first time, or as part of an update process, our coverage allows you to learn from veterans of innovation and R&D roles. A good resource to start with is our Benchmarking Report, published in collaboration with KPMG, which includes data on the structure, focus, budgets, and size of innovation teams at large companies, as well as advice from executives in senior innovation and strategy roles.
Innovating inside large organizations is not easy. So how do you deliver concrete, tangible impact — over the short-term, medium-term, and long-term? Innovation Leader 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.
