As a senior leader in your organization. this is an invitation to an exclusive webinar launch of Version 3 of the Management Innovation Index (the MIX).

Innovation in 21st century is now divided into 3 segments – incubators, start-ups and medium to large organizations – each requiring different types of innovation thinking skills. The main challenge for medium to large size organizations is how to grow through their own innovation capabilities. Most medium and larger organizational innovation efforts still start with idea generation. This approach ignores critical organizational skills, practices and capabilities required for innovation success.

It also materially reduces the chance of success.

The Management Innovation Index (the MIX) addresses this critical gap using clear metrics and actionable recommendations.

Launched 7 years ago, the Management Innovation Index has collected over 22,000 pieces of data on building innovation capabilities and capacities. The last 2 years has been spent researching the data collected strengthening and focusing the Management Innovation Index’s analytic powers and its ability to benchmark and drive successful innovation outcomes for our clients.

This 40 minute presentation introduces the updated Management Innovation Index demonstrating how it works by

  • benchmarking your leadership teams for their creativity, surfacing their strengths and weaknesses that can cause impediments to innovation
  • benchmarking the organization’s cumulative innovation capabilities enabling leaders to make informed decisions on how to best develop these vital internal capabilities
  • mapping the organization’s creative flow ensuring the organization aligns its creative inputs to its organizational goals.

A 20 minute Q&A will follow the presentation.
