Examples; 10 of the 776 standard requirements:
- Are there any further important challenges with respect to data-driven innovation in your organization where measures at national or state level should be put in place (please note: this does not only mean regulatory measures)?
- Designing internet of things (IoT) solutions can unlock innovation, increase efficiencies and create new competitive advantages. but in an emerging marketplace of mostly unknown and untested solutions, where do we start?
- Is one supplier head and shoulders above the rest in terms of the value it provides; including price, innovation, ability to adapt to changing situations, capacity to work with your team, task joint risks, etc?
- How do you measure the Operational performance of your key work systems and processes, including productivity, cycle time, and other appropriate measures of process effectiveness, efficiency, and innovation?
- Do we cover the five essential competencies-Communication, Collaboration,Innovation, Adaptability, and Leadership that improve an organization’s ability to leverage the new Innovation in a volatile global economy?
- Due to the role of creativity and innovation techniques on the development of new ideas, which of the creativity techniques are the priority for application in collective strategic decision making?
- What about long-term initiatives (e.g., product or process innovation) that may ultimately save the enterprise and that may end up being short-changed by the continuous improvement mindset?
- When placing suppliers in the matrix, you should consider the positive aspects as well as the risks. For example, could the supplier help with service innovation/transformation?
- Regions and clusters are engines of innovation and growth, so how do national and local governments and communities foster innovation and growth avoiding global and regional polarization?
- Think of some innovations you have been associated with. Were they the result of radical events or did the experience result from the accumulation of a series of more minor changes?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Innovation investments work better.
