September 2018 - November 2019
This project examined key considerations that shape how organizations define their innovation structure(s) and governance necessary to help shape and manage innovation activities within those structures.
The key questions were:
- What are the appropriate organizational structures (teams, activities and programs) for the innovation we need to accomplish?
- For each organizational structure that is deployed, what is the best governance model to ensure successful innovation?
The team held two sessions with the Innovation Leaders' Network to explore the topic and solicit feedback from IRI members. The data that will be presented in the white paper was the result of a survey of the IRI membership.
