InnovationOne, LLC is delighted to have participated in this joint project with the Ethos Project team to demonstrate the high correlation between culture and R&D lab performance. The results are outstanding: a one-point difference in a lab’s innovation culture score on a 100-point scale corresponded with a 20-30 percent increase in performance of key R&D outcomes. Indeed, culture improves R&D lab performance.

These results closely match our breakthrough research with the private sector. Companies that score in the upper quartile of the InnovationOne Culture Index have an average of 22 percent higher financial outcomes than those in the lower quartile. Whether in the public or private sector, cultures of innovation lead to higher performance and financial results.

Our compliments and sincere appreciation to Jason Stolworthy and James Keating, MBA M.Eng. CLP at the U.S. Department of Energy at Idaho National Labs, and Laszlo Gyorffy MS of IdeaScale.
