Benchmark Your Innovation Performance

How innovative are you? 

Most business leaders agree that in an increasingly competitive global economy, companies that fail to innovate will not survive. But they also recognise that there are various levels of innovation. Most companies will be making incremental changes to their products, services or processes on a regular basis, but moving into new markets, adopting new technologies or changing business models requires significant investment and an understanding of how to mitigate risk.

Self Assessment Tools

To help you benchmark your company's innovation performance, we have brought together the following self assessment tools:

  • There are two Innovation Self Assessment tools, each addressing a different aspect of innovation.  Both are providing useful feedback to help the company with its business thinking.
  • Innovative businesses have strong leaders. Measure your Leadership Qualities with this new personal assessment tool.
  • Value added is an important measure of the health of a company. Our Value Added Calculator is simple to use. Once you have calculated your company's value added, why not compare it with the companies in the DTI's Value Added Scoreboard.
  • Did you know you can also access the UK Benchmark Index on-line and get a health check on your company?  Click here to begin your health check.
