European Innovation Scoreboard & RIS 2023
We summarize the results of the European Innovation Scoreboard, (EIS 2023), including the regional analysis of the EU, Regional Innovation Scoreboard, (RIS 2023) and the global comparison with other countries.
The most extensive analysis, which also includes 11 other European countries, shows that Switzerland is Europe’s innovation leader.
At the global level, the EU has reduced the distance with some of the leaders.
The Regional Innovation Scoreboard complements the EIS and, in my opinion, greatly helps to understand the development of innovation.
Direction and project management
It is a fact that organizations are generating more projects. Regardless of the need, automation and the so-called “digital transformation” mean that the amount of routine work is constantly decreasing and project work is increasing. Consequently, it is necessary to increase the preparation and capacity for the direction and management of projects.
Projects are vehicles for transformation and change. They create the future and are the ideal support for the implementation of the strategy.
Innovating as strategy
Formulating a strategy is still useful, in an increasingly disruptive and unpredictable environment? Is innovation a strategic activity in companies and organizations? How to merge innovation and strategy?
Today, innovation has more strategic weight than ever. In other words, the strategy should be more innovative every day.
Innovation is the result of a strategic process, with a continuous flow of projects and programs that channels the resources and methods necessary to bring them to a successful conclusion.
It’s a management process. An open process that can be designed, implemented and improved in all companies and organizations.
The management of the innovation process favors the creation of an «innovative culture», helps companies and people to take decisions about risks, benefits and associated strategic value. Agile innovation is based on the active fusion of these two concepts:
Innovation + Agility = Agile Innovation
Agility is introducing the concept of value and flow in all processes
