After the recent Canadian Federal Budget 2017, Dave Watters and the team at Global Advantage once again completed a thorough assessment of the budget and its impact on the S&T/Innovation Ecosystem. The 2016 map has been revised and updated. The results: fresh data, revised insights and the information necessary for strategic decision-making.
With the revised 2017 S&T/Innovation Ecosystem map in hand, our team has been providing briefings to a variety of federal departments. These customized briefings include an overview of how the system works and it’s main components, a focused discussion on their area of interest, key highlights that are brought to light through the input-output framework, and finally, issues specific to the organization/department. In addition to the 60-minute briefing session, the organizations also receive printed copies of the map. A printed copy of the 2016 S&T/Innovation Ecosystem Maps can be purchased for $375.
Dozens of maps have been delivered to federal departments and agencies. As departments put together their plans for moving forward, an understanding of the overall system and each department’s role provides insights that are required to move strategically and with clear direction. A system perspective allows for a comprehensive understanding of the flows, relationships, and dependencies.
