ISPIM, the International Society for Professional Innovation Management, champions the innovation activities of commercial entities and is back with its ISPIM Grand Prize to recognize the work currently going on.
Great products are the result of excellent innovation management, and so the Prize seeks to recognize the outstanding work that innovation professionals do to deliver great innovation to the market. It is looking for cases that significantly advance the practice of innovation management in proven application, not theory. The advance should be in how innovation is managed, they are not seeking proposals that describe the actual end output, the what.
Examples of submissions to the Prize could include;
- launching an Open Innovation program to accelerate new ideas and public engagement
- energizing the whole company to contribute to technology radar
- introducing a common ethos and approach to innovation in a large, diverse and decentralized organization
- making innovation more efficient through new processes
The competition will be open to all commercial enterprises (companies or not-for-profits) and the deadline is 8th April 2015. A panel of judges will first assess the entries, before 3 finalists will be invited to present at the ISPIM conference in Porto, Portugal on 19th June 2015.
