Tool: Transformative Innovation Policy Radar

Estimated Time
90 minutes
Resource Type
TIPC Region
Latin America Hub

This reflective tool helps us to think about an initiative (such as a project, programme or policy) as a Transformative Innovation Policy experiment. It draws on guiding principles co-created by TIPC members during the Consortium’s pilot phase. Users score the initiative for the presence of each principle, creating a picture of where strengths and weaknesses may lie, with scope to make recommendations for deepening the transformative potential.

The original tool was developed by the Latin American and Caribbean HUB of Transformative Innovation Policy (HUBLAyCTIP). This was translated into English, adapted and developed further for inclusion in the TIP Resource Lab.



The original version of this tool was created by the The Latin American and Caribbean HUB of Transformative Innovation Policy (HUBLAyCTIP). This was translated into English and adapted for Component 2 of the TIP Resource Lab. The authors listed therefore refer to those who worked on this English version.

Special thanks to Martha Liliana Marin and Claudia Obando Rodríguez at the HUBLAyCTIP for work to transfer this knowledge from the HUB; to Andrea Padilla Cuevas for translation and conceptual interpretation for the TIP Resource Lab; and to Elzemiek Zinkstock for science communication and graphic design.

Important: Duplicating the tool

This resource is a Master version of the tool. To use it, you will need to duplicate it to your own Miro account.

How to duplicate the Board

  • First, make sure you have your own Miro account. Researchers may be able to access a free educational plan for staff at educational institutions
  • Click on the ‘download’ link to access the Lab master board
  • Then click on the title
  • Click ‘duplicate’ – this will open another board with ‘Copy’ in the title
  • Rename the tool and save the URL

You will need to complete this process for each board. If you are using a tool with multiple groups, you can either: (a) create a different board for each group or (b) copy the tool multiple times on the same board. We recommend (b) to avoid confusion over board links.

If you are new to Miro, there is a short intro here.

If you accidentally change the Resource Lab Master, don’t worry! – please leave a message in the feedback section below and the Lab team will be able to update it.

  1. Feedback from a user: That it would be good to have some guidelines to structure the discussion more (after the radar is complete) – what’s next?
