The world has changed fundamentally in the last couple of years and so has the way we conduct business. Disruption has become the norm and together with technology trends like automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and exponential change, the new world of work will require businesses to be more resilient and adaptive than ever before – and to focus on innovation as a lever for competitive advantage.

Now in its 8th year of existence, Innocentrix’s South African Innovation League recognises our top innovation leaders. It exists to not only recognise innovation excellence, but also to impact growth and innovation capability building in Africa!

The Innovation League through the data at its disposal on innovation, provides local case studies, frameworks, information pieces and relevant methodologies that offer deep insights into our local innovation context, to help facilitate better ROI for innovation in Africa.

The SA Innovation League is an Innocentrix initiative, in collaboration with Milpark Business School and the Da Vinci Institute’s Technology Top 100 (tt100) Awards. The approach in 2021/2022 for the first time aligns with the series of ISO/SANS 56002 Innovation Management Standards, and incorporates the 7 key elements to grow and manage innovation capability in organisations as well as the 8 innovation management principles as advocated by the guiding ISO/SANS 56000 Innovation Management Standard.

The SA Innovation League provides valuable insights into the local innovation landscape, fostering learning and growth, sharing information on the new Innovation Management standards and assisting organisations to build a sustainable innovation capability into the future.
