Many wonder why their innovation programs fail to deliver the results they expect but few take the time to run an Innovation Assessment and understand their organisation’s “innovation capabilities” before starting innovation programs. A consequence is the adoption of standard approaches that fail to consider the cultural aspects of the organisation, skill level of the teams and expected contribution to the company’s strategic objectives.
Assessments help you direct your investments where they make most sense.
A systemic approach
We approach innovation systemically and assess seven areas for insights into your innovation capability. Within each of these system areas, we highlight barriers and enablers, critical gaps and start to build a view of your future state of innovation. We quickly assess the capability to innovate at an enterprise, organisation or business group level and identify capability and capacity gaps that you need to address to achieve your innovation goals. The Strategos Innovation System defines requirements that make a clear distinction between Baseline and World-Class Innovation Capabilities.
A proven approach
We tested and refined our approach through dozens of engagements with high growth companies across several industries. We have developed a proprietary toolbox to assess a company’s innovation capability through, e.g. surveys, interviews, workshops and case-based research. Performing an innovation diagnostic or assessment provides insight into an organization’s overall strengths and weaknesses, how its organizational structures and cultural aspects hinder or support innovation. Every organization needs to design the innovation approaches that are right for them and performing a diagnostic provides valuable input.

Next Generation Organisational Intelligence
At the start of 2020, we’ve announced our partnership with Temporall to develop real-time organisational intelligence focusing on innovation capabilities. Our collaboration will enable clients to surface insights about their innovation capability as well as monitor their progress to improve innovation capability over time. The workbench that Temporall provides us incorporates machine learning, tagging, and organisational network analysis. This digital platform will provide our clients with a quicker assessment turnaround as well as autonomy after we complete the initial assessment.
We’re very excited to continue to improve how we help our clients professionalise innovation and achieve the levels of impact and performance gains of world-class innovators.
