Capturing Innovation Premium 1999-01-0253

Innovation is regarded as a critical business success factor, yet only a few firms are happy with their current performance in innovation.

Clear top management support and commitment; (2.) Effectively executed role of chief technology officer (CTO); (3.) Skilled leaders and manager; (4.)

It is also important to have appropriate metrics in place to ensure that progress is being made in making the firm increasingly innovative.
