The Innovation Scorecard is a self assessment tool that supports the early planning and preparation that is critical to an organisation’s ability to improve its innovation capability. It has been developed by Enterprise Ireland in partnership with IDA Ireland and the Reform and Delivery Office in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER) with grant funding awarded under the Public Service Innovation Fund.

Innovation, as defined in the national Public Service Innovation Strategy, is the creation of a new, viable offering that adds value. This scorecard focuses on five of the key groups of innovation management elements aligned with the ISO 56000 series: Leadership and Planning; Organisation Context; Operations; Supports; Evaluation & Improvement. This questionnaire has 9 sections and should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Once submitted, you will automatically receive a report with an analysis of your organisation’s strengths and weaknesses from your perspective with suggestions areas for development.
