Before initiating an IMA, it is preferable that the organization gains a thorough understanding of the
reasons for carrying out an IMA, and about its current IM performance. There may be the need for
clarity on the IM and how it is performing, or there may be the need for change in the organization to perform better. In the first case, the IMA’s objective is to provide insights into the current performance – both strengths, weaknesses and gaps to the desired value creation through better IM. This will be the basis for defining and implementing actions for improvement. In the second case, the IMA may yield a transformation roadmap including organizational changes to reach the level of a high-performing innovator. The following reasons may trigger an organization to initiate an IMA.Note that the motivations in Table 1 are not exhaustive, nor are they intended to outline all possible
benefits of performing an IMA. The reasons for initiating an IMA will guide its scope, strategic intent,
required resources and – most important – the resulting level of change.Different IMA approaches include check-list assessments or benchmarking assessments. Check-lists . provide a list of issues to be considered when assessing the IM and its deployment. Benchmarking assessments build on defined internal or external peer group’s IM scores and provide transparency of the organization’s IM performance and competitiveness. Independent of whether the IMA is performed based on a check-list or on a benchmarking approach, the IMA can be designed along several dimensions as shown in Table 2. The“IMA Objective” will be defined as a first step when planning an IMA. The scope and, as a result, the questions asked will differ whether the IMA aims at compliance with defined targets, the value created from an enhanced IM, or at the organization’s IM capability for improvement.
The “Extent of IMA (Breadth)”covers the entire unit, defined either by a common profit and loss
statement or by an annual performance statement. Within this unit, all success factors of the IM will
be addressed in the IMA to reflect their interdependency; The selection of the “Assessed Objects (Focus)” ensures that the IMA results reflect the interdependencies of the organization’s innovation strategy, culture/ leadership, innovation process, for example. Only then underlying root/causes for IM improvement are identified. Deciding on the “Expertise Involvement” the organization takes a sober decision on the quality, availability and independence of internal resources. The recommendations from an external third party might have more credibility and impact on the implementation of the necessary improvements. The “Data Collection”will be determined by the defined scope of the IMA and by the availability of data that has been defined for the IMA.”Methods of Data Analysis” will be fully automated when using an online IMA tool that offers this service. However, effective interpretation of the IMA results will take into account the organization’s
level of ambition, competitive/external pressure to change, available resources and capabilities to
drive the change.  The selection of the “Reference Type” and “Comparison Types” depends on the organization’s access to reference data. When an organization performs an IMA the first time, internal data are not available. Here the defined targets or the external benchmarks might serve as a reference. The“Data Interpretation” ideally provides actions for further improvement of the IM. However, the “Data Interpretation” might also describe possibilities or predict what might happen as a result of certain actions. On the “IMA Output Format” the organization defines which types of actionable output they require for which level of hierarchy in the organization to achieve the necessary transparency and impact from the IMA. The“IMA Recommendations”reflect the full scope defined for the IMA. The recommendations may also affect the entire assessed organization or even their value networks.ISO TR 56004 pdf download.
