The Index is designed to provide a national benchmark for innovation, providing businesses and policymakers with an authoritative and objective snapshot of the state of innovation within their organisations and in South Africa.
In partnership with the Da Vinci Institute and TransUnion, Accenture applies best practice research approaches to provide a confidential customised innovation diagnostic report that identifies each participant's innovation strengths and weaknesses; benchmarks their innovation within their industries; and presents strategies that may help them gain competitive advantage. The programme culminates in the Accenture Innovation Conference where the findings of the Index are presented and the winners are announced. The Index also allows participants to submit concepts for consideration in the Innovation Conference showcase and awards.
Participation is open to all South African organisations—small, medium and large; listed or non-listed; NGO; public or private—with a commercialised product, process or service.
