Innovation proficiency Scale


It is irrefutable – innovation is now center stage for many organizations, as the pace of transition in competitive advantage moves more and more quickly. And yet, for many executives, figuring out where to start with the innovation agenda is a confusing process.


With the Innovation Proficiency Scale we can offer an assessment that will help you:

  • Assess your level of innovation proficiency and compare it to other organizations in our database
  • Measure whether different parts of your organization see the innovation process in a different way
  • Put in place a plan to create a genuine innovation proficiency across your organization

What does the Innovation Proficiency Scale Measure?

The Innovation Proficiency Survey consists of 5 sets of questions, focused on the following categories:

  1. Foundation
  2. Governance and Funding
  3. Metrics and Accountability
  4. Culture
  5. People and Structure

Growth Gap Analysis Tool

The Valize Growth Gap Analysis

Innovation teams often make the promise to deliver growth, but many struggle to achieve these ambitions. Why? Many teams are unaware of the Growth Gap - the difference between your projected growth goals and what your base business can realistically deliver. Filling this gap often requires innovative new offerings or acquisitions. That’s when things get complex. 

Valize can help. 

The Growth Gap Analysis imposes a structured and realistic view of the time at which revenues will, most likely, be realized. You’ll be able to proactively model the rate at which new growth or cost mitigation initiatives need to develop, enabling you to reach your projected targets.


IMPACT DDG Workshop Series


The Impact DDG program is a result of years of conversations with strategy and innovation leaders who are tasked with driving growth, but don’t know where to start or what process to follow. A subscription to the program will take your team from kickoff to repeatable innovation practice over the course of a year. Personally taught by Rita McGrath and offered only once and only to ten companies, a subscription buys you a year of workshops (up to 10), customized materials, access to other members of your cohort and the application of a proven methodology to fuel discovery driven growth.


Have an ambitious mandate to deliver innovation-fueled growth for your organization, but don’t know where to start? A subscription to the Impact DDG workshop program may be just what you are looking for.
