One of the key challenges in the commercialisation of government and statutory authority innovation is the measurement of success.

Metrics formed a key aspect of this presentation and the associated discussion.  The concept of impact vs commercial return was discussed and evaluated.  Furthermore the concept of measuring outputs of commercialisation without first referring to the inputs that a commercialisation team may have to work with were discussed.  A key element of creating successful commercialisation is clearly understanding the objectives.  Often commercialisation is the only real mechanism for enabling the adoption of a government technology within the broader marketplace.

We have assisted in establishing and training commercialisation teams from a wide range of government and semi-government authorities.
