Its intuitive and systematic framework navigates users through meeting objectives and expectations so they can successfully generate value for their organizations. The framework is evidence-based and data-driven, steering users to make informed decisions specifically tailored to their own organizational needs, and also offers a valuable tool to help measure and capture the financial and strategic return on innovation, improving the transparency and traceability of value creation.
