Where Should Companies Innovate? In Their Enterprises.
Date:10/19/2010

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus Corporation of the Americas (www.olympusamerica.com) today released findings from a Harris Interactive survey of Fortune 1000 executives concerning enterprise innovation – defined as the transformative business processes, practices, organizational planning and models that enable a business of any size to operate more effectively, profitably and/or competitively. The findings identify potential investment areas to help business leaders improve their prospects as the economy restarts.

Enterprise Innovation First; Business Invention Will Follow

However, more than half of executives (60 percent) say their company typically focuses more on product innovation than overall enterprise innovation. Forty-seven percent report that their company has no team, process or system for vetting new ideas in order to decide which ones to invest in. Moreover, only a minority report that their company promotes enterprise innovation by providing funding (37 percent) or access to educational (38 percent) or idea-sharing (35 percent) forums, and only one in three (34 percent) report that they have a team specifically dedicated to brainstorming new ideas.  

"The Olympus survey points to enterprise innovation as a sound place to deploy the saved-up resources – financial and human capital – that companies large and small have held back due to today's economic climate," says F. Mark Gumz, president and CEO of Olympus Corporation of the Americas. "The opportunity is clear: invest in your enterprise. Holding ba
