The Business Innovation Audit
The Business Innovation Audit is a practical business improvement tool. Its aim is to assess, expand and release your organisation's innovating potential.
The tool is designed for sophisticated senior managers and advisers, especially in HR, with responsibility for how well the organisation performs and want to increase its innovating potential.
It contains a set of ten self-assessment questionnaires covering different aspects of your organisation - its culture, reward system, development, etc. Each questionnaire is accompanied by advice; this helps readers complete the questionnaire as well as offering suggestions for subsequent improvement. The result is that organisations can then be managed in ways that allow creativity and innovation to flourish.
The audit is not designed directly to develop individuals' creativity, though among other things it does assess how the organisation manages this process.
