Innovation management can provide a competitive edge in the business world, and research shows a major correlation between profitability and innovation. The challenge, however, is how to integrate innovation management with quality management. Enter the ISO 56000 series of standards on innovation management systems (IMS). Specifically, ISO 56002 provides guidance on how to develop a systems approach to managing innovation. In this book, author Peter Merrill shares with readers the thinking behind each of the clauses in the standard. He explains real-life, practical applications of the guidance the standard provides and shows how to integrate an IMS with a quality management system based on ISO 9001 and be prepared for the future.  

In this book, you will discover how it: 
• Details the strategy and leadership necessary to manage innovation using ISO 56002 and explaining the cultures of creativity and execution that must coexist
• Defines the competences, tools, processes, and assessments that are needed to build an IMS in your organization in order to succeed at innovation
• Explains the principles that are the basis of innovation management
• Shows the vital role of innovation and creativity in the progression of organizations in today’s Industry 4.0/Quality 4.0 era
• Underlines the idea that innovation management and quality management must work together from practical and financial standpoints
