Calculating the value of innovation -
Value Infusion Methodology

It is a pressure-tested process that has been implemented at Fortune 500 companies and is a system to help partners define and quantify the impact of innovation activities to their business. It is guided by standard calculations provided by the respective organization’s Business Partners and Finance department and involves iterative calculations as more information is gathered throughout the innovation process, culminating in a final, business and finance-approved calculation.
