Innovation Maturity and Idea Management Systems

In my recent post on Innovation Maturity Models, I mentioned that the Think for a Change website is hosting a matrix chart for innovation maturity levels.

Looking at the chart, I am intrigued by how 5 of the 11 rows (Idea Capture, Idea Management, Training, Tools & Techniques, and Metrics) in the Think For a Change innovation maturity matrix are primarily or largely about Idea Management Systems.

One of the interesting points is that turning this around, managing ideas systematically is not only a sign of progress along an innovation maturity path – conversely, the adoption of Idea Management Systems can be a key tool for leverage to drive an organisation along the path of innovation maturity.
