90% of innovation fails to deliver on its goals

The global cost of this failure is in the trillions – £65 billion in the UK alone. While building Acclaim Ideas, we spoke to more than 100 enterprise innovation professionals to try and understand why this was happening.





We identified three root causes of innovation failure.


Lack of methodology

Innovation processes are inconsistent, fragmented and poorly-defined.


Lack of measurement

Because innovation isn’t properly defined, it’s also hard to measure.

Strategic Alignment

Lack of alignment

This lack of consistency and measurement means that innovation isn’t seen as integral to the day-to-day business.
