What is Fincoda and how does it work?
The FINCODA project team have developed a framework that can be used to assess an individual's capacity to innovate. Using an online platform, it is possible for individuals to assess themselves against this framework by answering a series of questions. The project team have also worked to create behavioural assessment training that business and university leaders can complete in order to provide accurate assessments of their colleagues, team members and students.
The FINCODA toolkit, which includes the online platform and behavioural assessment training, will launch officially in January 2018. At this point, access to this toolkit will be available for all. If you would like to be notified when the toolkit becomes available, please register interest on the 'contact' page.
Innovation skills - five dimensions
How do I complete the assessment?
What happens after the assessment?
Upon completing the survey, you will be able to access a report that identifies areas for you to develop, in relation to each of the five dimensions: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Initiative, Team Working & Networking
The development feedback will be specific to each of the five innovation dimensions. You can see an extract from the development report feedback on the left.
The innovation assessment measures an individual's capacity on five dimensions. These dimensions are shown to have strong links with innovation and come together to create a model of innovation that encompasses the entire innovative process from idea generation through to implementation.
