Recently, a family friend underwent a total hip replacement surgery – at the age of 87! He said he had no pain, but his mobility was becoming severely limited. My friend said he was a “very healthy 87” and after just a few weeks, he is again walking and driving with no apparent restrictions.
What does healthy mean? To my family’s friend, healthy meant mobility since that equated to staying in his home without intrusive care. To me, healthy means I can participate in 5K runs, ride my bicycle as far and as long as I desire, and that I maintain the same weight I was in college. (Thank goodness I don’t wear all the same clothes though!)
A healthy innovation system is one that produces repeatable new products and services, delivers continuous profitability, and maintains a competitive advantage for the firm. That’s a great list, but it’s not measurable.
Global NP Solutions has designed the Innovation Health Assessment benchmarking tool. By using the short survey, you can quickly assess the strength of your innovation system on seven key measures. These include strategy, portfolio management, processes, life cycle, teams and leadership, tools and metrics, and customer insights.
