Why should you run an Innovation Diagnostic?
Many CEOs wonder why their innovation programs fail to deliver the results they expect but few take the time to run an Innovation Diagnostic and assess their organization’s “innovation capabilities” before initiating company wide initiatives. A consequence is the adoption of standard approaches that fail to consider the cultural aspects of the organization, skill level of the teams and expected contribution to the company’s strategic objectives.
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.
