Our new study of Chief Innovation Officers, surveying 260 innovation executives and done in collaboration with CapGemini, has now been released and has been picked up by Wall Street Journal, Forbes and others.
Among the main conclusions:
- 43 percent of companies now have a Chief Innovation Officer, up from 33 percent last year, but the role is still nascent and undefined.
- The number one obstacle for innovation is the lack of an explicit innovation strategy – something that 58 percent of companies do not have.
- Only 26 percent of companies have clear Key Performance Indicators for innovation
