IT News Africa CEO, Abe Wakama will sit on the Accenture Innovation Index Panel on the 21st of August 2017. The Accenture Innovation Index creates a national benchmark for innovation in South Africa. It provides businesses and policymakers with an authoritative and objective snapshot of the state of innovation in the country.
In partnership with the Da Vinci Institute and TransUnion, Accenture applies best practice research approaches to provide a confidential customised innovation diagnostic report that identifies each participant’s innovation strengths and weaknesses; benchmarks their innovation within their industries; and presents strategies that may help them gain competitive advantage.
The Index also allows participants to submit concepts for consideration in the Innovation Conference showcase and awards. For four days, the index panel will be adjudicating the top 8 concepts submitted by the entrants.
