The new ISO 56002 Guidance on Innovation Management is written with the common High-Level Structure (HLS) of ISO Management System Standards. It enables the integration of different ISO management systems such as ISO 9001.
Today, ISO 56002 is a guiding standard, and it will be a required standard (56001) in four to five years. So, instead of waiting, we decided to launch the first ISO 56000 Innovation Management Readiness test to prepare for ISO 56001. The Readiness is based on the ISO56002 Guidance available from today, delivered by Innovation360 and our licensed practitioners.
ISO 56000 also covers several other parts such as Fundamentals and Vocabulary, Tools and Methods, Assessments, Intellectual Property Management, Strategic Intelligence Management, and Idea Management. Tools and Assessments has already launched the rest over the coming years.
Innovation360 Assessment and Innovation Management System are compliant with the work, but also more comprehensive, adding a full 360 perspective. The 360 Perspective means that you are investigating all levels across boards, internally and externally. This is also the weak point of all ISO audits, as they are built on sampling and not true 360. However, by digitalizing the processes using state-of-the-art technology, it is possible to get a higher resolution, solve underlying blockers, and find good examples to amplify and adjust the capabilities, leadership, and culture needed to deliver on complex tasks such as innovation.
If you like a ISO 56002 readiness score, please contact us at Innovation360 or one of our licensed practitioners in 45 countries.
