Why Use The MIX

“With the Management Innovation Index and its outcome, the Management Innovation Assessment Report, we have enough information to really concentrate on shaping our strategic innovation plan over the next two or three months, that will drive the success of the business for the next five years!”

How the MIX works for your organization

The Management Innovation Index ™ (the MIX) helps senior leaders and decision makers respond to the challenges of leadership and innovation by focusing a specialized “creative lens” on the key drivers that make your organization successful.

The MIX™ systematically benchmarks and tracks organizational innovation in three stages.

Step One

Assessment of your senior leadership team’s cumulative traits, beliefs and attitudes around innovation analyzing its creative strengths and weaknesses.

Step Two

Mapping the organizations innovation ecology to assess how the innovation focus and output operates to determine any impediments or blockages to successful implementation and how those impediments or blockages may be removed.

Step Three

Creation of the your organization’s Management Innovation Index against which the organization can plan and develop an holistic and systemic approach to drive value, growth and success through continual innovation.

The Management Innovation Index Assessment is a deep in-depth analysis outlining opportunities and recommendations to develop leadership and innovation capabilities and to shape organizational practice in ways that foster deeper creativity and game-changing innovation around the organization’s key drivers for success.
