ISO 56000 – Towards continuous improvement and sustainable success.

Traditionally the territory of R&D teams, today many companies have organisation-wide innovation management programmes. This is due to increased recognition that innovation is essential for driving business growth and maintaining competitive advantage.

Successful programmes capture the creativity of employees at every level of the organisation so ideas for new products, business initiatives or process improvements are quickly discovered and implemented for maximum value.

ISO 56000 Standard on Innovation Management Systems (IMS) is an all-encompassing set of standard operating procedures designed to provide a general framework for all organisations, regardless of type, sector, or size, whether established, temporary or starting, toward the successful implementation, maintenance, and continual improvement of an innovation management system.

The standard also provides guidance for all types of innovations, such as products, services, processes, business models and methods ranging from incremental to radical, as well as all types of approaches, such as internal and open innovation for user-, market-, technology-, and design-driven.
