Innovation Stage Mapping Survey

One of the best ways to answer the question of where project is in its innovation journey is to use the questions in the “Innovation Mapping Survey” figure. After the questions have been answered, the key at the bottom of the survey can be used to determine (by the distribution of the yes answers) where a project is in its innovation journey. By knowing this, a project can be initiated in the proper Stage in the Stage / Gate or Agile / Lean process. Given the position, the appropriate number and kind of resources can also be allocated to the project team.
