WHAT IS AN INNOVATION SYSTEM

An innovation system is the structure and environment that encourages the creation, refinement, and implementation of novel ideas, products, or services. An organization can innovate more effectively and efficiently if all necessary activities and other interrelated or interacting elements are managed as a system.

WHY AN INNOVATION SYSTEM

Follow the guidance of the ISO 56002 and prepare for future certification

Implementing an innovation system fosters creativity and adaptability, allowing the company to stay ahead of market trends and changing customer preferences.

The ISO 56002 is composed by several areas of action that can be designed independently or jointly:

  • Context of the organization (external and internal context, stakeholders, etc.)
  • Leadership (innovation strategy, policy, etc.)
  • Planning (objectives, innovation portfolio, etc.)
  • Support (people and competence, finance, etc.)
  • Operation (innovation processes, idea-to-market, etc.)
  • Performance evaluation and Improvement (analysis and evaluation of the system, etc.)

Our work is based on the international guidance standards ISO 56002, including the expected certifiable standard ISO 56001.

HOW TO IMPLEMENT AN INNOVATION SYSTEM

Sustainability creates the urgency, innovation delivers the solution

The implementation of a system to manage innovation is specific to each organisation. Some businesses might need to start working on their Innovation vision and strategy, while another business might need to focus on specific processes or create a Priority Canvas to better manage the innovation portfolio.
