Your questions answered
What is an Innovation Pathway Audit™?
All businesses need to innovate to stay competitive and relevant to the needs of their customers. However many find it difficult to do so on a consistent basis. Innovation in most organisations is usually ad hoc, inconsistent and ineffectual. This audit provides your business with important feedback about the attitudes and actions of staff and managers in relation to innovation so you can work out how best to move forward. The Innovation Pathway Audit™ specifically helps you identify the barriers to innovation within your business so that you can then work out in what particular ways the business needs to adapt and change to become more consistently innovative.
