The purpose of this standards familiy is to provide guidance on how an organization could build and what needs to be addressed to build an innovation management system without detailing the specific system itself. The standards produced by this TC (Technical Committee) are intended to be applicable to all kinds of organizations (private, public and NGOs) of any size, with a special focus on SMEs, and for all kinds of innovation (products, methods, services, processes, organizational, and business models new or improved). Due to the general approach, a wide range of stakeholders are affected by these futures standards:

  • Industry and commerce; especially SMEs; including service, industries, private investment bodies, venture capitalists and advisors, innovation management consulting companies, transfer and valuation agencies
  • Governments, including public investment bodies
  • Academic and research bodies
  • Non-governmental organizations
