Innovation: What are the most successful companies doing that others aren’t?

May 16, 2011 / 1 min read

It’s nearly impossible to have a meaningful discussion about the future of the Midwest without touching on innovation. From business leaders and the media to Plante & Moran clients and staff, the consensus is that innovation is key to the long-term growth and success of our region’s businesses.
But what do we mean when we talk about innovation? And how can an organization develop a framework and processes that will support it?

To explore these questions, Plante & Moran has partnered with the NewNorth Center to develop the Innovation Quotient (IQ) survey. Our goal is to reach out to Midwest organizations and better understand how to make innovation more meaningful, intentional, and profitable.

I’d like to invite you to test your IQ by taking our survey. It should take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and your information will be used for benchmarking purposes only. The best part? Around August 15, you’ll receive a customized report on your organization’s innovation IQ.

In the meantime, let’s talk innovation. What drives innovation in your company? How does your corporate culture support and reflect your innovation initiatives?
