Innovation, impact, and governance. These three pillars of analysis allow us to avoid the quantitative trap. Of course, we’ve often been confronted with the question of scoring innovation, and we’ve learnt how to handle that. Among SGOs it is still something of a challenge to apprehend this, and they often tend to under-evaluate their own added value in terms of innovation. When looking at the rankings, one thing comes to mind though: small, medium, and large SGOs can fit in a list. That is why Pre-scoring is a valuable thing to do. Get a clear idea of how your SGO [any SGO] can score. It won’t give you a rank but you will clearly be closer to finding out.
