Most companies are constantly in the process of improving their growth and innovation capabilities to ensure they keep up with market demands and competitive dynamics as long as keeping and defending their competitive position.

Understanding the current state of your growth and innovation capabilities needs a comprehensive approach. From our experience working with executives and companies around the world, we have identified 8 key dimensions that when properly evaluated, allow management to accurately asses the current state of their capabilities, evaluate gaps and craft improvement plans.  These 8 dimensions are: (1) Strategy context and focus, (2) Customer centricity, (3) Competitive context, (4) Organization and structure, (5) Culture leadership and language, (6) Team management practices, (7) Management processes and metrics and (8) Support systems and tools.

A pictorial of these dimensions can be seen below:
