Does Standardisation Stifle Innovation?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) plays a vital role in standardising various aspects of innovation management to help organisations achieve excellence in innovation.

The ISO56000 suite of standards provides a comprehensive framework and guidelines for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an innovation management system within an organisation.

Taking a holistic approach to innovation management, ISO addresses various aspects such as strategy, leadership, culture, processes, and measurement. It encourages organisations to consider all these elements when managing innovation.

The ISO innovation management standards are not prescriptive but serve as valuable references for organisations seeking to improve their innovation capabilities.
