Thank you for your interest and participation to the second edition of the HEC - Act One Innovation Management survey. This survey is meant for Innovation Managers with either the title or the activity (e.g. coordinating various services to find innovative solutions to client demands, industrial problems, etc.). Please respond only if this is your case, as we will have to discard any other participation.

The following online questionnaire takes about 20 minutes to answer, and can be paused and resumed at your convenience. Please complete it before May 21st so that we have sufficient time to process the results:

Every eligible respondent will receive - by June 10th - a detailed report of all key findings including:

  • - Key success factors: innovation's place in the organization, field of intervention, etc.
  • - Best practices: idea rewards systems, providers and clients roles, etc.
  • - Future stakes: integration with HR and evaluation process, risk management, etc.
