Strength fails,

Test and improve your innovation capabilities!

BM Waves Test

Test your innovation capabilities

Our innovation test assesses the level of maturity within your organization and can help you identify potential areas for improvement.

This service is free of charge. Your data will be transmitted with an encrypted connection and will be treated confidentially.

After you have completed the survey, we will generate a report with your tailored assessment. This assessment is based on research on business models and innovation. It has been applied to numerous companies of different sizes and industries. The automated assessment cannot, however, replace a detailed analysis of your organization's innovation capabilities. Moreover, results are subject to your own biases and principal limitations due to the survey design. We thus highly recommend an in-depth discussion of your results and also offer additional analyses if desired.
