NEEDHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) August 09, 2018
The purpose of this program is to improve the corporate signal-to-noise ratio for innovation KPIs that really matter. These nine metrics are not the only innovation KPIs that matter, but they are nine of the metrics that do matter.
For ten years now, inexpensive big data and the cloud has enabled capturing huge amounts of information. Analytics and early-AI then generate information about the information. Today, the total amount of knowledge across the globe is doubling roughly every 1.2 years
Technology advances aside, there have always been a lot of metrics in R&D and Product Development. The number of unique metrics numbers close to 1000. There are metrics for projects, products, processes, technologies, functional and technical disciplines, levels of innovation, and a dozen more R&D and product development innovation-related subjects. Nearly all these measures get presented to CXOs. This reduces the amount of time spent on the truly important innovation performance measures.
This webinar will focus on 9 metrics that collectively drive and capture "overall innovation performance." These 9 KPIs apply to any business unit, division, or corporate organization, that is responsible for both revenues and costs in order to maximize profit and shareholder return. And, of course, they apply to the corporation as a whole.
The 9 metrics, as a group, go a long way to capturing the true performance of corporate investments in innovation. You may recognize a few of the metrics, but we will expand your knowledge of the measure -- and its benefits and drawbacks. For the metrics you do not recognize, we hope to introduce you to some great key performance indicators that your company will choose to adopt.
- Receive a list of the Top 20 metrics that industrial and high-tech companies use today.
- Learn of new-to-the-world metrics that are on the road to widespread industry adoption.
- Obtain 9 KPIs that collectively facilitate and capture top innovation performance.
- See overall measurement trends above the noise that arrives in your mailbox each day.
The 9 KPIs
Join us for an intellectual hour with business professionals to discuss nine great metrics that really get at corporate innovation performance, with no analytical spin or promotion by GGI.
References to all cited materials are provided in detail to enable participants to independently follow-up on the metrics and KPIs of specific interest.
