This initiative is known as "IMP³rove". IMP³rove stands for IMProving Innovation Management Performance with sustainable IMPact. The impact results from linking innovation management performance with the company's sustainable and profitable growth. IMP³rove builds on a holistic innovation management approach covering innovation strategy, innovation organization and culture, innovation management processes, as well as enabling factors for innovation management. It drives an integrated and performance-oriented improvement processes.

More than 400 innovation management support service providers across Europe have been trained in the IMP³rove approach. They now constitute an international network. 50 case examples have been selected to illustrate the impact and the versatility of IMP³rove.
