Advancing Innovation is a how to guide for innovation at your company.  This book explains the significance of innovation governance, which is described as a yin and yang relationship, and offers practical execution steps, downloadable forms, innovation insights and Innovation Value Score® (IVS) a proprietary measurement system to calculate, compare and improve innovation value creation. IVS uses a balanced scorecard framework and the book foreword is written by co-creator of the Balanced Scorecard, Dr. Robert S. Kaplan.  While this book will be beneficial to many people that directly or indirectly lead and support innovation, Advancing Innovation is geared towards senior finance and accounting professionals (office of the CFO) and how they can effectively manage, support and lead innovation efforts at their company. This book is being published by the Institute of Management Accountants, who also conducted specific research for this body of work. We believe the call to action around innovation has never been stronger in history than what it is today.  Use Advancing Innovation as your how to guide to drive more innovation value in your business!
