Scoring and Interpretation
Strategic innovation and strategic adaptation are two important ways leaders bring creativity to strategic management. Leaders with an adaptor style tend to work within the situation as it is given and improve it by making it more efficient and reliable. They succeed by building on what they know is true and proven. Leaders with an innovator style push toward a new paradigm and want to find a new way to do something. Innovators like to explore uncharted territory and seek dramatic breakthroughs, and may have difficulty accepting an ongoing strategy. Both innovator and adaptor styles are essential to strategic management, but with different approaches. The strategic adaptor asks, How can I make this better? The strategic innovator asks, How can I make this different? Strategic innovators often use their skills in the formulation of whole new strategies; strategic adaptors are often associated with strategic improvements and strategy execution.
 
If the difference between your two scores is 2 or less, you have a mid-adaptor/innovator style and work well in both arenas. If the difference is 46, you have a moderately strong style and probably work best in the area of your strength. And if the difference is 810, you have a strong style and almost certainly would want to work in the area of your strength rather than in the opposite domain.
