You Need to Invest in Innovation. Here's Why.

Companies know that they have to innovate to survive. Problem is: most of them don't know how. In fact 50 to 70 percent of R&D initiatives fail and manufacturing executives are growing frustrated. In part one of today's blog series, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic looks at the reasons innovation efforts fail and explains how enterprise innovation management (EIM) may help turn the tide. Read part 1.

And don't miss part 2 where P.J. takes an in-depth look at leading EIM software and services company, Sopheon. Read part 2.


Innovation is hard.
Can software help?
