Gainesville, Fla. — Jan. 9
The Perth Leadership Institute, a provider of business acumen assessment and development programs, has announced the availability of its white paper into the innovation styles of executives.
The white paper sets out a new approach to identifying and developing executives with innovation styles that are most likely to have a high commercial impact, using formal assessment instruments developed by Perth.
The research is based on the book by Dr. E. Ted Prince, founder and CEO of the institute, titled “The Three Financial Styles of Very Successful Leaders,” published by McGraw-Hill in 2005.
“Our white paper sets out a new approach to innovation,” Prince said. “Rather than just focus on innovation processes, companies also need to identify the innovation styles of the leaders and managers of innovation programs.
“As the white paper shows, having innovative managers is not enough — they must also have the type of innovation style that will result in commercial impact. Their innovation performance can be improved by showing them how their behavior is linked directly to company profitability and valuation.”
The Perth Leadership Institute has developed new leadership assessments based on its research. These form part of its financial performance training and improvement programs for executives and include its individual, team and C-level programs.
Perth recently announced the release of its Financial Outcome Assessment, an online instrument that assesses the financial acumen of executives and managers and shows them how to develop it.
