ISO 56002: 2019 - Get a head start through innovation management
Innovation is the ability of companies to translate new ideas and inventions into economic success. The entrepreneurial ability to respond to changes in the market and in society is the key for businesses to thrive. The ISO 56002 standard helps you to manage your innovation activities systematically and achieve the intended results.
If you want to ensure that new ideas and inventions come to fruition and contribute to organizational success, innovation must be managed professionally.
One of the instruments that can help is the ISO 56002. The international standard, published in 2019, provides guidelines for the establishment, implementation, maintenance and continuous improvement of an innovation management system for use in organizations of all types and sizes.
What is the benefit of an innovation management system?
An innovation management system helps you to develop and demonstrate your ability to innovate. A structured innovation management approach also helps you to present and improve your innovative ability internally, for example with regard to communication.
ISO 56002 can be applied to all organizations, regardless of type, sector or size. The guideline includes every kind of innovation and takes into account all innovation approaches. It does not describe detailed activities within the organization, but rather provides guidance at a general level. It does not prescribe any requirements or specific tools or methods for innovation activities.
