Dear Team,
On my website I just posted the page shown

Dear Team,
On my website I just posted the page shown below. The links are active so you can easily try out your enterprise's or project team's innovative potential – be realistic! I would love to get your feedback. You could share your scores, say what you think is missing, or what is not right. All would be valuable and, I think, interesting to our team.
All the best,

Curt

Will You Succeed?
Measure Your Innovative Potential[stevejobs]<https://www.practiceofinnovation.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/stevejobs1.jpg>

Can your enterprise or team succeed? I have created two spread sheets that allow you to measure the innovative potential of your enterprise and your project team. I call them the Enterprise Innovative Index and the Project Innovative index. A discussion about their design and utility can be found by clicking on either Innovative Indices at the top of the home page or here<https://www.practiceofinnovation.com/your-innovative-index/>. The Enterprise spread sheet is here<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1u5txb7uiKZtWnT9JEjUjjE7VbckWIkWDPaUUf-ZPxIY/edit#gid=0> and the Project spread sheet is here<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rKhgmcnqgwRqNGTIlsgoi4DZb4rDso0NnXQfPip7Qz8/edit#gid=0>.

These are subjective metrics, but the attributes listed are fundamental to success. My hope is that the indices will stimulate a discussion among your teammates to promote improvement. I have added a few reference enterprises on the spread sheets, including Apple and SRI International. As you will find out, getting a high score is very hard. If Steve Jobs is one of your benchmarks for innovative excellence, then you will understand why. There is a reason Apple has 92% of smart phone profits<http://www.wsj.com/articles/apples-share-of-smartphone-industrys-profits-soars-to-92-1436727458>.
