What Big Companies Get Wrong About Innovation Metrics

What Big Companies Get Wrong About Innovation Metrics | Business | Scoop.it

They’re all measuring it, but few are doing it right.

 

The fear of getting Netflix-ed or Uber-ized is spurring big companies to dial up their investment in innovation. Companies as diverse as AIG, Disney, and Intuit have been building innovation teams, launching “accelerator” programs to attract promising startups, and giving employees seed funding to test out new ideas with real customers.

 

But as investment increases, many companies are struggling with a challenging question: how do you know whether your chosen innovation strategy is actually bearing fruit?

 

Beneath that question is a very real worry. If this new crop of Chief Innovation Officers, company-bred venture capitalists, and creative catalysts can’t prove that they’re moving the needle on things that actually matter to their employer, their jobs will almost certainly evaporate.

How To Measure Innovation (To Get Real Results)

How To Measure Innovation (To Get Real Results) | Business | Scoop.it

Metrics are a combination of art and science. The trick is to inspire action around the goals you set.

 

There’s an elephant in the room when it comes to "innovation." And it’s an ironic elephant given that we're all so hooked on data analytics, a/b testing, and getting metrics for anything and everything. Yet we all throw around terms like creativity, breakthroughs, and disruptive innovation. Companies eat up this stuff—they're fully on board. Innovation is going to shape the future. Sure—if we track and shape it. 

 

SOME MIGHT ARGUE THAT INNOVATION IS IMPOSSIBLE TO QUANTIFY. THEY'RE WRONG.

 

According to McKinsey, more than 70% of corporate leaders tout innovation as a top three business priority, but only 22% set innovation performance metrics.

The gap is problematic. Why aren't more companies measuring innovation? Because innovation is nebulous. Definitions differ. Expectations vary.

Measuring and then managing anything based on the measures requires a theory about cause and effect. This article provides some thinking about some possible structure for measuring innovation. While the need is great,  clearly lots of work still needs to be done.
