i2Metrix introduced and implemented for the first time in Vietnam
Vuong Quan Hoang, Researcher of Centre Emile Bernheim, and Nancy K. Napier, Director of Centre for Creativity and Innovation (Boise State University) have since 2011 worked on a long-term project to develop a measurement program to investigate and support innovative capacity in the Vietnamese corporate sector.
In February 2014, together with colleagues at Hanoi-based DHVP Research and Saigon-based Centre for Business Studies and Assistance (BSA), the two scientists have successfully designed a set of innovative measurements applicable to the corporate sector, called i2Metrix (read "i-squared metrics") the name that was given by Dr. Dolly Samson of Bangkok-based Stamford International University, an adviser to "i2Metrix" project.
The implementation followed with a survey on 19 most productive enterprises in the BSA's Leading Businesses Club, leading to early results that were released in a i2Metrix 2014 Preliminary Report, which have been covered in mass media in Vietnam after two seminars in Ho Chi Minh City on Feb 25, 2014 and Long Xuyen City (An Giang Province) on Mar 6, 2014. 17 firms actively engaged in innovation practices and management have been given awards by Vietnam's Minister of Science and Technology following the first time application of i2Metrix.

It is expected that more firms will be using the i2Metrix plan to self-investigate their capabilities and seek methods of improve their innovation management practices amid rising wave of competition in the years to come.
