UG: Special Report on Innovation Metrics

Special Report on Innovation Metrics

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.

Innovation executives want to be sure they’re using the right metrics, and reporting to business unit leaders and senior management teams in a way that ensures continued support and resources.

This report captures what we’ve learned so far — both what executives are tracking today, and what new dimensions they’re still working to capture.
