How do you know that you and your team are innovative? What are your measurement indicators for innovation?
If you do not have clear answers to these questions you have good reasons to participate in the work shop “Measuring for innovation – a guide for innovative teams”. As innovation is a necessity for any organization today, the ability to assess and measure the progress and impact of your innovation efforts might be a true source of competitive advantage. In this workshop you will be provided with a framework which will guide you and your team in establishing an innovation measurement program. Once a suitable innovation measurement program has been implemented the innovation capabilities of your team, as well as the confidence from both internal and external stakeholders will increase.
The workshop focuses on the assessment of innovation capability at team level in relation to the processes which takes place before actual product or service development projects are decided; when new business models, technological opportunities and intellectual property rights are created and investigated. We will present and discuss a measurement framework called MINT (Measuring Innovation Capability in Teams). This framework focusing on four areas: innovation elicitation, selection, impact and ways of working.
Your outcome of the workshop will be increased insights for how you and your organization can measure innovation efforts and better drive innovation processes. You will also get the possibility to buy documentation and do it yourself instructions in the Applied Innovation Management article Measuring for innovation, by Fredrik Nilsson, Björn Regnell, Tobias Larsson and Sofia Ritzén.
