ISO 56000 Guidance
WHAT THEY ARE:
Why does innovation matter? Not just why does it matter to our economy, but why should it matter to your business? Innovation is a basic survival skill in a global market where disruption is the status quo. Customers are more likely to buy and pay a premium for innovative products or services and innovation supports long-term growth.
It also matters because ISO the International Organisation for Standardisation) thinks it does. ISO 56000 is a series of international guidance standards, some of which have already been published and others that will follow in the coming months and years.
They will cover everything from developing a consistent language around innovation, to measuring innovation, ideas management, innovation assessment and partnerships for innovation.
WHAT THEY ARE NOT
Some providers claim they can certify or accredit against the guidance and some suggest they can issue an ISO certificate.
At present these are voluntary, guidance standards. This means it is not possible to certify or accredit against them. They are best regarded as an internationally validated guide for innovation management.
