MIMS® Assessment

Evaluating or auditing an organisation's innovation management system is no easy task. You need to know what to look for, be objective and, above all, be able to make operational recommendations to improve the organisation's ability to innovate. The MIMS® Assessment is an evaluation and decision-making tool that allows detailed analysis to be carried out in a minimum of time.

MIMS® - Maturity of the Innovation Management System

MIMS® is an online assessment tool based on 35 questions in 5 levels that measures the maturity of a company’s SMI in less than an hour. Based on ISO 56002, it uses an algorithm that combines more than 2,000 parameters to generate pre-written, editable analysis reports.

MIMS® is the result of a research programme combining our experience in developing assessment tools based on multi-criteria approaches and our in-depth knowledge of ISO 56000 Series. This tool enables consultants to analyse all the practices that impact on an organisation’s ability to innovate.

The use of maturity grids enables a rapid and comprehensive analysis, regardless of the level of practice of the company being analysed and the expertise of the consultant.

Once the assesment is complete, the user has access to written reports that evaluate the performance of the company’s system according to 5 indicators: the ability to generate ideas, to implement them, to create value, to deal with uncertainty and an assessment of the degree of alignment with the standard.

The reports can be set up to include the client’s graphic chart and can be downloaded in .docx format for final customisation before delivery to the audited company.
