Advancing Innovation: Galvanizing, Enabling & Measuring Innovation Value!
Advancing Innovation is a must read, how to guide for innovation in your organization. Innovation value creation is not a nice to have, it is a must have for organizational survival! New market research points to a clear call to action and shows that organizations need to reinvent and augment their value proposition, at minimum, every five years which you can only do with a commitment to and excellence in consistent, important innovation. The book explains the significance and undeniable need for a yin and yang relationship referred to as “innovation governance”. The author then goes on to outline practical execution steps, downloadable forms, innovation insights and introduces Innovation Value Score® (IVS) a proprietary measurement system to calculate, compare and improve innovation value creation. IVS uses a balanced scorecard framework and the book foreword is written by co-creator of the Balanced Scorecard, Dr. Robert S. Kaplan. While this book will be beneficial to many people that directly or indirectly lead and support innovation, Advancing Innovation is geared towards senior finance and accounting professionals (office of the CFO) and how they can effectively manage, support and lead innovation efforts at their company. 67% of senior finance and accounting professionals now support innovation in some fashion vs only 35% 10 years and this figure is predicted to rise to 3 out of every 4 finance leaders within 3 years – are you ready?
