What is innovation management?

Innovation can be defined as ‘the introduction of something new’, which means that innovation management refers to managing the process of ‘introducing something new’, from thinking of a new idea, to implementing it and putting it into practice. This could be launching a new product or service, or it could be a new internal process within a company, among many other things. In addition, it can include improving products, services or processes already in place.

There are two pillars to innovation management:

  • the shaping of framework conditions to ensure that there are new ideas and that they are implemented successfully. This refers to organizational development activities

  • the actual innovation that takes place, including the search, development and implementation. This refers to creativity and project management
