Do technology platforms like intranets, enterprise portals and collaboration tools help or hinder how you source, organise and develop new ideas?

This survey will help you understand, plan and maximise your investment in technology by answering the following questions:

  • Which technologies are least and most popular?
  • What types of innovation do these technologies used to support?
  • Are companies looking to invest more or less in these technologies?
  • What barriers need to be overcome to unlock innovation?

The report will be FREE to all survey participants who request it when published before the end of the year.

You will get a breakdown of the responses, expert analysis from leading commentators, examples from organisations faced with similar challenges, and will conclude with a set of actionable recommendations.

The survey has 11 questions and will take no more than 5 minutes to complete. No names, company information or personal details will be published or used in the survey analysis.
