The week will see 1,000 or more participating organizations assess their own innovation maturity, benchmark themselves against others around the globe, and develop their own innovation roadmaps.


You will be invited to complete a short evaluation that will reveal your organization's innovation potential and capabilities. Your personalized innovation assessment and benchmark report will provide recommendations on how you can sharpen your innovation strategy, leadership, culture, and capabilities by assessing the following key points:

  1. What capabilities need development to achieve your ambition

  2. Where you should allocate resources to achieve a balanced innovation portfolio

  3. Which ideas you can bring to market faster with greater confidence

At the event on February 25, Innovation Practitioner Krishnan Naganathan will lead an in-depth group exploration of similarities and differences with reflective humor and insight. Participants will leave the session with clarity on the report results as well as a targeted set of innovation recommendations and actions they can take immediately.

4 Common Mindsets that Block Innovation and Growth

Do any of these sound familiar?

"We don't have the budget now for more innovation."


Innovation is about rapid adaptation and survival in a fast-paced world. If you aren't integrating innovation into every aspect of your operations, your risks of getting broadsided by a crisis or struggling to stay relevant go way up. Thinking of innovation as a pure "luxury" or stand-alone effort is an organizational death sentence. Instead, you can stay open to learning step-by-step, practical ways to build innovation into your unique culture and strategies.


"Innovation is already happening on our team."


This is usually true. More often than not, though, the innovation is happening on the backs of courageous and vocal champions who fight hard to be heard and spend a lot of energy working a new idea through muddy and unclear steps. Imagine if you had a clear process and environment to share new ideas and make decisions about which of those move forward to development? Imagine if all those quieter, frustrated, or introverted team members felt their ideas could be heard without having to yell it from the rooftops? Innovation culture is invariably built on a reliable, repeatable process to cultivate ideas and move them through a decision process that is clear to everyone.


"We're too busy to start another new program."


See the note above about the budgets. A perception of "not enough time" is equal to the perception of "not enough money." You are spending time and money on lots of things. Are you confident that you are investing the right amount of time and money to look beyond what is right in front of you? Understanding innovation horizons and how they apply to your mission will help you maintain the balance of "keeping the lights on" today while also looking to tomorrow's necessary evolution.


"We're not a technology company."


This comes across a lot of ways: We're too small. We're a services company. We're a government entity. We're a non-profit. We're one team inside of a larger organization.

The truth is, none of that matters. Innovation isn't about technology. You can innovate around customer or stakeholder needs, schedule constraints, marketing and sales, product or service delivery models, you name it. It can start with one team. And then if your innovation culture flows wide and deep in your organization -- you'll find that the synergies will cross over any silos, functions, and departments anyway. Innovation is simply about finding the most elegant and effective ways to adapt and change.
