How does it work?

The IMProve process involves:

1. You gather some well-defined quantitative data and provide it to us for benchmarking analysis. This usually takes 1-3 days.

2. Your business is allocated performance scores based on assessment in five areas:

Innovation strategy
Innovation organisation and culture
Innovation life cycle processes
Enabling factors
Innovation results

3. Your scores are compared with other businesses using the largest benchmarking database on innovation management. It includes over 4,000 companies that can be filtered into comparative data such as sector, size, age, country and revenue.

4. An assisted session is held with you at your premises to complete the on-line questionnaire. This usually takes 2-3 hours.

5. The IMProve report is analysed to identify steps to help your innovation growth. This takes us 1 week.

6. A review session is held with you to help you develop your innovation action plan. This usually takes 2-3 hours.
