Blueprint for IMP³rove Technical Assistance
A national development agency intended to launch an innovation program to stimulate innovation projects within small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). With the IMP³rove Technical Assistance selection criteria were defined and implemented that motivated the SMEs to involve an external expert to assess their innovation management capabilities.
Thus the success rate of the innovation projects increased.
