Innovation Leader versus Laggard Study
As the knowledge partner of the World Innovation Forum, Capgemini Consulting has recently completed its global innovation survey on the current state of innovation. The result is our second innovation leader versus laggard study. It covers five key areas that affect a company’s innovation success: the strategic outlook companies have with respect to innovation, their capabilities to manage the innovation process, the overall impact of technology, the innovation function itself, and how these factors influence companies’ spending plans. The study offers a unique perspective by looking at the differences in behavior of innovation leaders vis-à-vis laggards across these key areas. Finally, this report offers an overview of the most important implications for innovation executives – looking to improve the material impact of their innovation efforts on the business results.
