Help Shape the Future of Innovation Excellence

Help Shape the Future of Innovation ExcellenceGreetings! I’m Doug Williams, and I’ve recently joined the Innovation Excellence team as Chief Research Officer. Yes, that means what you think it means: we are rolling out a variety of research services to help you overcome the innovation challenges you face. But more on that later.

The focus of this brief post is on you, our audience. We have you to thank for helping us become the world’s most popular innovation website. We want to continue to deliver the same great content from our superior collection of innovation authors, but we know there are more ways we can help you.

We have some great ideas, but we want you to help us innovate.

How? The first step is to take our brief 10-minute survey. Our aim is to understand the makeup of our audience, to gather feedback on new features, products, and services we can offer, and listen to your suggestions for other ways we can improve. We’ll also be asking you to join our research panel, and later, to help us develop our research agenda.

And of course you can always participate in our online community to offer suggestions, feedback, and insight on what we are or should be doing.

Thank you in advance for investing 10 minutes into helping make the site better and setting our research direction. Please share this post with colleagues and your innovation network so we can get as much feedback and input as possible.

And thanks too for spending time on our site.

We are excited to evolve Innovation Excellence in ways that will hopefully inspire you and provide you with research and tools to help you innovate successfully.
