For some, these industries are equivalent to innovation. Being seen as a disruptor by other industries and in general scoring high on the ability of generating sustainable year over year top line growth, these industries are the center of attention when it comes to the future.

However in spite of being on the cutting edge of the latest technologies and a key enabler for new trends, these industries have their own innovation drawbacks. Diversity and cultural homogeneity are for example some of the issues these industries have been focusing on solving over the past years. And moving forward these are regarded by industry insiders as cornerstones issues to be tackled if the industries are to fully tap into their innovation led growth potential.

Based on OUTCOME’s pioneering work on measuring corporate Innovation Maturity, we’ve launched ‘AIM Individual’ – a single-person version of the enterprise-wide tool AIM, used to build The Global Innovation Maturity Index.
