  • As the knowledge partner of the World Innovation Forum, Capgemini hasrecently completed its innovation leader versus laggard studyAbout the study (1/2) – Background Study background Key research areasAs we started off this study on the occasion of the World Innovation Forum,the objectives were twofold: not only did we want to understand the currentstate of innovation, but we also wanted to identify what drives the success of I. STRATEGIC OUTLOOKcompanies that view themselves as successful innovators. The result is oursecond innovation leader versus laggard study. It covers five key areas thataffect a company’s innovation success:I. Amidst ongoing economic uncertainty, but with increasing indicators of II. CAPABILITIES economic recovery, survey respondents were asked about their strategic outlook with regard to innovation.II. We specifically looked at the current state of affairs concerning an organization’s capability to innovate: innovation strategy, innovation III. TECHNOLOGY management, and the involvement of external parties in the process.III. In an era of digital transformation, it is unthinkable to do research on innovation leadership without taking into account the role of technology. We asked respondents about the impact of technological innovation. IV. INNOVATION FUNCTIONIV. How is the innovation function within companies fulfilled? This global innovation survey also addresses the innovation function – as a key area for innovation leadership.V. Finally, the spending outlook for innovation completes this innovation leadership study. It unveils what drives the success of companies that V.

  • Our methodology differentiates between innovation leaders and laggards,based on their innovation success rateAbout the study (2/2) – Methodology Study methodology Innovation success rate % of respondents, n = 375 As the knowledge partner for the World Innovation Forum, Capgemini Consulting conducted an online survey using What percentage of your innovation efforts has a positive HSM’s network of conference participants and attendees¹, material impact on the business results? plus a selection of Capgemini Consulting’s client base. The online survey, in the field from April 07 to May 07, 2010, 40,8 generated responses from 375 executives around the world, representing the full range of industries, regions, functional specialties, and seniority. In addition, 13 follow-up interviews were conducted to get a better understanding of the context 24 10,7 of the findings and to add depth to the result interpretation. 24 24,5 The methodology differentiates between innovation leaders and laggards based on a self-assessment by survey respondents of their innovation success rate. The innovation success rate is determined by the percentage of innovation efforts that has a positive material impact on the company’s 10,7 business results. We distinguish between 4 categories of innovation success based on this rate: ‘Less than 25%’, ‘25-49%’, ‘50-74%’ and ‘Over 75%’ of innovation efforts having a positive material impact on the business results. The ‘Less than 25%’ category Less than 25% 25-49% 50-74% Over 75% represents the innovation laggard group and the ‘Over 75%’ LAGGARDS LEADERS category the innovation leader group of analysis. ¹Event organizer.
