The DTI Economics Paper number 7, “Competing in the Global Economy—The Innovation Challenge”, found that UK Innovation performance as a whole is around the average of other advanced economies, but that UK businesses as a group appearing to be less creative and less able to introduce workplace changes and, in some areas, the UK lags in the adoption of best business practices.
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills does not plan to make an assessment for benchmarking purposes. Since the above paper was published, the evidence base in these areas has strengthened considerably, with regular, consistent and comparable data being published, including an improved and extended Community Innovation Survey (CIS). As such, it is not considered necessary to undertake a specific assessment as regularly updated data on workplace innovation are readily available.
