Innovation Management Principles

Eight principles form the foundation for managing innovation activities in organizations. They are embedded in the innovation management system developed by ISO.

The innovation management principles were developed to capture the essence of effective management of innovation activities. They can be used as an introduction to understand the innovation management system or as a tool for assessing the innovation capabilities of an organization.

1. Realization of value

2. Future-focused leaders

3. Strategic direction

4. Culture

5. Exploiting insights

6. Managing uncertainty

7. Adaptability

8. Systems approach

The innovation management principles will be published in ISO 56000 Innovation management – Fundamentals and vocabulary, that also includes the terms and definitions.
