Corporate innovation programs that struggle, tend to in a number of ways. 

  1. Lack of an overall unifying vision and strategy (the programs begin being tactical and rarely ever escape from being simply tactical).
  2. Lack of "translation" (the programs communicate objectives and approach in the vocabulary of "innovation" instead of the language of business operations).
  3. Lack of "balance" with the organization's core goals, needs, and vision (an innovation program needs to exist with while also standing apart from the core business).

The innovation program handbook (IPH) is an innovation program leader's guide to building a long term, sustainable, comprehensive innovation program. It serves as both a time-and-place assessment and also a strategic guide for the growth and maturity of a complete innovation capability.
