FOR MAKING INNOVATIVE DECISIONS
The statistics, reports and visual presentations you extract from the Portfolio and Dashboard, are a live measurement of your innovation heartbeat. This measurement enables you to inject data and analytics deep into your operations. The information gives you better transparency into how your organisation actually works, and is a tool for you to make decisions; these decisions lead to the actions that will help the organisation reach its strategic goals.
The module makes it possible for you to integrate specific innovation metrics into your existing key performance indicator (KPI) reporting. The real time data can easily be presented visually in different modules, using the metrics you choose. You can use it for a range of things, from identifying bottlenecks, to avoid processes being delayed, or to provide information for decision-making during meetings and presentations.

From the moment an innovation or idea is created and put into the Induct community, the innovation starts the process ideally leading into implementation. In order for the implementation process to progress smoothly, innovations are categorized by type or origin.
Induct has developed customized implementation processes based on this categorization to provide the ideal pathway for an idea to progress from initiating stage until implementation. AA customized implementation process is a collection of related, structured activities or tasks fosters a smooth and correct idea/innovation implementation and ensures commitment and involvement of all involved stakeholders.

Project portfolio management
In innovation management there is high need for Project Portfolio Management which is the centralized management of the processes, methods, and technologies used by innovation management teams to analyze and qualify the incoming innovations and ideas based on characteristics such as the required implementation resources, implementation process and innovation impact.
The overview of projects is illustrated in the innovation funnel report indicating the number of innovations, their respective position into the implementation process. This funnel is adjustable to the needs of the innovation team, can indicate the origin of a suggestion and manages and informs about the timing and progress of the ideas and innovations.
The objectives of Project Portfolio Management is to properly manage the inflow of ideas and innovations where the number and impact of ideas and innovations is maximized, input and output are kept equal and stakeholders are informed.
