Corporate Innovation Accounting Use Your Budget In The Most Effective Way

January 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Traditional accounting methods are used to measure, monitor and manage innovation. However, it is also considered as a major innovation blocker.

PwC’s study from November 2018 highlights: ‘there is no statistically significant relationship between how much a company spends on its innovation efforts and its sustained financial performance (Global Innovation 1000 study, www.digitalpulse.pwc.com.au/report-global-innovation-1000-study).’

The job of Innovation Accounting is to change just that, it maximises the bets an organisation can place to create new sustainable business models. It demands meaningful metrics to monitor progress, holds intrapreneurs accountable and gives them the necessary freedom and agility to succeed.

Innovations succeeds when all critical unknowns (known unknowns in the form of assumptions and unknown unknowns) are removed from a project. Progress means to do just that, using the minimum amount of resources. From an Innovation Accounting perspective, unknowns are the innovation debt (risk).
