Oh, I have been suffering from a serious writers block the past few weeks. And I thought, I must break this one way or another. I am yet to complete my series on Re(i)nnovation….and I will..sooner than later.

In the meanwhile, here is a survey with a list of teasing questions – to test your innovation quotient.

What is your InQ?

Read on…or jump to the survey.

Innovation has garnered more headlines recently as one of the core processes that every organization must nurture in order to retain its viability. Innovation in an organization goes beyond simply responding to change—it creates change in the environment that other organizations must respond to, and therefore can become a sustainable competitive advantage.

Many organizations employ a top down approach to innovation. Strategy is formulated at the top along with the major initiatives for achieving it. Some of these initiatives will be innovative in nature, related to the development of an innovative process, product or service. Top down approaches may solicit input from deeper in the organization, but the formulation of the innovative ideas remains at the top. Hybrid approaches create a structure in the middle of the organization that encourages innovations from the bottom up and works to shape them into viable business ideas.

To find out which end of the paradigm you are in, we formulated a simple set of 20 questions. These questions are more focussed towards the intrinsic fabric of your organisation, to assess your weft and weave; they are not meant to determine what course of action you must take, or what you should do. It is merely a set of questions, the answers to which will determine if you are indeed a Star Innovator, or a Spectator, or a Seeker!

Take the survey here. We will compile your answers, and email you the results together with a comparative organisation assessment of your Innovation Quotient (InQ). ALL FOR FREE!!
