ISO 56003:2019 Innovation management - Tools and methods for innovation partnership -- Guidance

Innovation is the key driver for organizations to create value from new products, services, processes, or business models. Therefore, innovation needs to be managed in a systematic manner. Many organizations have already established their innovation management (IM). This might build on key success factors such as the innovation strategy and objectives, the operations for innovation including the processes and organizational structures, and the innovation-enabling factors, the innovation support, including among others the innovation culture, tools and methods, competencies, human and financial resources. Managing innovation in a systematic manner creates value and secures the organization’s future. As a consequence, organizations seek guidance on continuously developing their innovation management capabilities and performance.
