Tool Measures Innovation

Improve your company's ability to innovate new products with Innovation Insights, an intranet-based assessment application from Research Triangle Institute, Research Triangle Park, N.C. This benchmarking tool quantitatively measures how well the technical staff and management of a company listen to customers, share ideas and know-how within the company, and use outside resources to leverage their R&D efforts. Launched as a secure, virtual intranet site within the company, the Innovation Insights questionnaire takes some 15 minutes to complete, according to the institute, and individual identity is protected to encourage candid responses. Company practices are then analyzed to identify areas for improvement.
