A discussion of the development of an interactive tool to help cities understand& explore& and measure how innovation is supporting their sustainable development objectives. Working with an expert group of advisors and against the background of five rounds of the Guangzhou Award sponsored by the city of Guangzhou& UCLG& and Metropolis& the tool helps the users (urban leaders in the public& non profit and private sectors) self assess their situations in order to guide innovation in city management across relevant departments or agencies in municipal government and/or serve as a governance tool among multiple stakeholders in a municipality or region. The tool recognizes that urban innovation encompasses more than the common interpretation — smart cities— to include many more elements.
