The State of Innovation Management in 2015 – recently released

State of Innovation Management - HypeAs we come closer to the year-end it’s always good to look back, to take out some dedicated time to take ‘stock’, in this case, on innovation’s progress.

In a just released “The State of Innovation Management in 2015” that I have authored and kindly provided by HYPE for free, I believe you will find something of interest that you might have missed during a busy year, that is coming to a close. I certainly hope you will find time to go through it.

You’ll gain a valuable and quick insight into critical aspects that innovation managers and CINO’s should be aware of. It is in an easy format of thirty plus pages and offers a reference resource that builds a solid understanding of innovation today regarding relevant factors that will stimulate and support your innovation activity.

There has been a Surge of innovation reports in 2015

I am sure you have experienced that in 2015 we have seen a significant surge in innovation reports, many of these coming from large consulting firms or innovation publishers. Each has been providing an updated view on where innovation presently ‘sits’, in its challenges and the needs to be addressed going forward.

I approached HYPE and suggested that there should be an attempt to pick out some of the interesting points within these reports, I was promptly given the challenge and they are providing this for free, a year-end bonus I feel.

Go to this link, which takes you to the landing page and simply register to obtain this free report provided by HYPE at the year-end.

Investing your time is always at a premium, I trust this report is worth it.

I decided this report format would be valuable to save you time or reconnecting to some good reports that came out in 2015. Usually there is just not the dedicated time to wade through all these reports, they seem to come in waves or sometimes we even simply just miss them. So I undertook the task !

In this report just released, I was highly conscious of saving your time and have tried to make as much of the reporting visual with as little text as necessary. It is for you to determine what part is relevant to your situation and within the links provided, you can explore these further more if they have this real relevance and I bet one or two really will.

The tough part was on deciding what to review, include or exclude. I took the view of just reviewing all the known (to me) reports coming out in 2015, with an exception or two going back to 2014 if it supported my thinking of what I think you might view as relevant as against just interesting. I was looking to achieve some “actionable relevancy”

I am hopeful it gives you a stimulating read over the coming festivities as we begin to move forward into 2016 with some helpful looking back from these selected 2015 reports. If you need any further interpretation or my further perspective you know where to find me.

Here is the landing page again, simply register for the report and then hopefully it offers you something of value to you.

If there some given areas  that trigger your need to explore these further, then HYPE and I can certainly help provide deeper connections and insights. This is part of my advisory bag to support you in your innovation advancement, I hope the report does just that.

Happy reading, wishing you a really great start to 2016.
