Golden Innovation Metric


This opportunity is closed

We’re looking for an article that articulates the need for innovation metrics and what those may look like. The audience for this article is R&D leadership, and the goal is to show them how to develop and use innovation metrics.


What we’re looking for

You will be writing an article on innovation-related topics to help inform R&D leaders’ decisions on strategy, collaboration, and management. The article’s narrative will tell a story, likely weaving through several themes in order to offer insights that expand executives’ thinking on innovation and consider fresh approaches to their R&D and business alignment. Tips and guides are fine. Stories with strong voice are especially desired. Let your expertise shine. Be courageous about sharing your own personal triumphs and tribulations in the first person as an entrepreneur, technologist, analyst, investor, consultant, and general practitioner of innovation. Be open to a thought-provoking story on a specific topic with surprising references: an energy story that examines the history of whaling; an R&D story that analogizes zombies; a talent acquisition story that references expeditionary forces.
