Graphic: Corporate Innovation Programs Come in Ten Flavors

Above: Click to see high-res version, of the 10 Corporate Innovation Programs

Recently, at Crowd Companies, we published a research report on the Corporate Innovation Imperative (short version available on Slideshare), and found that companies are struggling internally with cultural pushback, but they’ve launched over ten innovation programs to help large companies become nimble. This handy graphic, is organized in the following way:

  • It lists all ten innovation programs that companies are launching. Keep in mind, many companies are deploying several, but few are doing them all well. In our full report for customers, we have adoption and budget details.
  • They’re organized with the center programs being internal programs, and the outside circle are programs that are partnering with the external ecosystem, often with startups.
  • Descriptions are provided on the top and bottom of the graphic, to help bring to life the various programs. Often people are most intrigued by the Intrepreneur Program or Open Innovation programs.

Thank you Jaimy Szymanski and Vlad Mirkovic for their assistance on this project. Also, we’re conducting a few followup reports on Corporate Innovation Metrics, processes, and internal organizational models. Contact me at jeremiah at CrowdCompanies.com if you know of a large company we should interview, or a vendor that’s helping with these goals.
