There has just been a highly useful benchmarking report released by Innovation Leader with KPMG LLP sponsoring this and providing some of their collective insights into the different aspects of “Benchmarking Innovation Impact 2018″
At present, you can download the report before it might slip behind a paywall at some later stage. I would take advantage while you can. The report provides insights from 270 innovation, R&D and strategy executives and considerable work on structuring the conclusions in highly thoughtful and valuable ways to the reader.
If you are not familiar with Innovation Leader, they were created to be a growing and essential resource for innovation, especially in the bigger organizations.

It’s editor and Co-Founder Scott Kirsner (firstname.lastname@example.org) and his team are building a great point of reference and meeting point for innovators to exchange and learn from each other. Maybe you should join?
Why do I think the report is well worth you investing time to read? The report provides an excellent document that enables good discussions to be drawn from the benchmarking of many organization, to compare with your own organization.

It can allow you to communicate and suggest the needs for a new innovation approach where you need others involved but they would expect to see a validation. This report helps in all these and much more.
I am going to just focus on three parts that really caught my eye Continue reading
