Innovation Tools My colleague Chuck Frey, founder and editor of Innovation Tools, is conducting an Innovation Climate Survey to determine how innovation is holding up during a time of economic uncertainty and market volatility. There are only five questions that take less than five minutes to answer, so drop on by and offer your opinions on the current environment for innovation.

In December, Chuck co-authored a special report with Renee Hopkins Callahan on innovation strategies for the downturn. This follow-up survey asks respondents to quantify the changes in their organizations' innovation climate and funding since the recession has hit, and asks them about the specific strategies they're using to help to keep innovation alive.
