The challenge facing many organisations is a lack of clarity on the internal barriers to innovation, whether they be leadership sponsorship, management approaches to innovation, communication about innovation strategy or lack of process and tools. Building a culture of innovation is an organisation-wide endeavor and requires a multi-disciplinary approach, an ecosystem to survive and the right conditions to thrive. That means the innovation audit has become a vital tool in understanding an organisations current state of innovation readiness.
Developed in partnership with Wazoku, the UKs leading collaborative idea management software company, Innovation Pulse is a starting point for understanding where your organisation is today and where to focus to develop your innovation capability and ultimately, build a culture of innovation.
