To win the award, Eucon completed a comprehensive, scientific selection process, in the course of which the development status of the entire innovation management system was reviewed. Emphasis was placed on already implemented innovation projects and future innovation potential. More than 100 indicators from the categories “innovation-promoting top management”, “innovation climate”, “innovative processes and organization”, “external orientation (open innovation)” and “previous innovation success” were used for the analysis.
“The innovation management of the Eucon Group was convincing at all levels, even by international standards,” explains Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, scientific director of the competition analysis. “This gives the company enormous potential for future innovation success – both as a modern employer and as a digital partner to customers.”
