About the session

Being able to measure innovation has long been considered the Holy Grail of innovation management. This session caters for the needs of top managers tasked with explaining to their boards why continuing to invest in innovation is an activity still worth doing in their respective companies, with arguments going beyond just employee engagement, good marketing or hackathons.
Join the session to learn from the authors of the forthcoming Innovation Accounting book how to measure innovation.
