New Research Report Examines Key Drivers of Product Innovation Capability

ANCASTER, ONTARIO, CANADA - September 25, 2014 - Stage-Gate International announces the release of a new research report that explores the key drivers of innovation performance.  The study identifies what differentiates high-performing companies from those with average and under-performing capabilities.

Innovation Performance: Critical Drivers of Success is the result of collaborative research led by world-renowned innovation management expert Scott Edgett and was conducted jointly by Stage-Gate International and APQC.   The study analyzed innovation performance at over 200 companies including some of the world’s top organizations.

The report explores key product innovation metrics and provides current benchmarks to gauge product innovation performance.  It examines, in detail, performance on all four drivers of the Innovation Performance Framework™: Product Innovation and Technology Strategy, Portfolio Management, Idea-to-Launch, and Culture and Leadership.  

“Top performing companies that are the product innovation juggernauts, regardless of industry, all have something in common.” explains Scott Edgett, “They understand that the ability to increase business value through innovation is a critical capability.”  The report provides excellent benchmarking information for companies seeking to build their innovation capability.

The report is available for purchase as a download. See for more details.
