Innovating for growth
The Brisbane Innovation Scorecard is more than just statistics; it’s a glimpse into the future prosperity of Brisbane, Australia’s new world city.
The scorecard is now in its fourth year and is the world’s first city-based annual innovation benchmarking tool.
The comprehensive survey measures innovation within the city’s businesses and reports on its effect on their growth, productivity and the region’s overall economic performance.
The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) defines innovation as “a new idea that creates value” and innovative activities surveyed in the scorecard can include:
- development of a new product or service.
- new investments that reduce costs or improve performance and.
- new business models or arrangements that change the way a business operates.
The scorecard recognises and profiles companies, businesses and individuals committed to excellence in innovation and their contribution to Brisbane’s long-term economic growth.
These companies share their inspirational integration of innovative technologies and practices within their core business processes to:
- improve products.
- respond better to their customer base.
- accelerate their systems.
- develop better internal practices among staff.
The Brisbane Innovation Scorecard is a collaboration between Brisbane Marketing, The University of Queensland Business School, Brisbane City Council, Queensland Government (Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts) and Enterprise Connect.
The 2013 Brisbane Innovation Scorecard will be released at a luncheon event on Thursday 21 November.
