In the face of increasingly complex and dynamic environments, companies are continuously challenged to learn and adapt, particularly in the area of responsible innovation. This chapter introduces a diagnostic self-assessment tool to support companies in facing these challenges by drawing on insights from organizational learning and responsible innovation. In the context of innovation, self-assessment can enhance organizational learning with a view to foster an organizational culture and innovation capabilities that in turn have a positive effect on innovation performance measures. The COMPASS self-check tool therefore aims to enable learning by translating the concept of responsible innovation into concrete corporate practices and policies, ascribing them to specific business functions. The systematic deconstruction of responsible innovation into observable practices allows the COMPASS self-check tool to go beyond existing learning tools and supports companies in aligning responsible innovation with business realities.
