Validation, Gap Analysis and Continuous Improvement

As the innovation through inclusion system takes gains traction it is important to validate the adherence to the established innovation through inclusion processes. This is done through a re-deployment of the iSA 18-24 months after the launch and analysis of the initial iSA. This re-assessment allows the organization and management to identify departmental gains as well as challenges and static performance.

This phase includes:

  • A post-deployment of the iSA to measure success and/or application of recommendations

I through I Advisory Council Development

After extensive assessment, benchmarking findings and training, the development of an Innovation through Inclusion Council (IIAC) takes place to ensure proper development of innovation through inclusion management plan and improve communication.

The purpose of the IIAC is to:

  • Provide solutions based insight and input
  • Generate Innovative Ideas
  • Ensure that the Innovation through Inclusion Management Plan gains and maintains sustainable traction

Properly implemented, the IIAC will:

  • Improve organizational performance through the encouragement and implementation of employee and team contributions which ultimately leads to:
  • 1) The organization’s ability to better leverage its employees and stakeholders
  • 2) Market gains through a broader more diverse customer base.
