Rethinking the measuring of innovation

Paul Hobcraft

I’m a little tired of the lack of original thinking that goes into measuring innovation. Leaders want to hear this, the sad true is getting a ‘decent ROI’ for innovation constructed (note constructed) is really hard.

There are hard and soft measures to measuring or judging our innovation.

We need to open up our thinking about risk and innovation management. We should aim for a really healthy construct that does help all involved or associated with innovation and managing risk, that gives a better chance of pushing beyond the incremental innovation that avoids most risk and disappoints those seeking real growth.
