Innovation makes us stronger
THIRD MEASURING OF INNOVATION MINDSET UNDERLINES THE IMPORTANCE OF COURAGE TO PUSH FORWARD NEW THINGS
he innovation mindset index (IMX) was measured for the third time in November and December last year. The IMX rose to 57 percent, a slight increase since the beginning of 2020. “The IMX is more than a number. It helps us to better see the aspects of what we have or lack when we’re engaged in innovation”, says Christian Schrader from GGS – Corporate Strategy and Innovation Management. We can see from the results and the comments that innovation is slowed down by a fear of implementing new things, overcoming an administrative burden or tackling difficult cross-area cooperation. “The results show that we have sped up the use of digital tools and that our people are passionate about innovation, but our capacity to bring new ideas and push them towards implementation has to improve. From the results and from ongoing discussions in all the business areas, we see the need to sharpen our innovations for business growth and to support our internal innovators. Positive role modelling and having visible implementation results will be our greatest drivers”, says Andre Wehner, head of GG – Corporate Development and Digitalisation. RED
