New Books on Innovation

H. James Harrington and Sid Ahmed Benraouane, Ph.D are excited to announce the availability of two new books on innovation that are focused on the new ISO 56000 Innovation standard.

Using the ISO 56002 Innovation Management System: A Practical Guide for Implementation and Building a Culture of Innovation is the only comprehensive book currently available on how to fully implement the ISO 56000 standard in companies. This book is crucial for managers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and consultants looking for help to reap the benefits of an innovation management system. This book takes you step by step through the process of developing an innovation ecosystem. In addition, it provides frameworks, tools, methodologies, cases, and best practices so your organization can experience the full value of the standard.

Managing Innovative Projects and Programs: Using the ISO 56000 Standards for Guidance and Implementation is the only book currently available that provides a step-by-step procedure on how to process a medium- or large-size project, program, or product using an already-established IMS that considers the guidance given in ISO 56002:2019 – Innovation Management Systems Standard. Often the most complicated, complex, difficult, and challenging system used in an organization is the IMS. At the same time, it usually is the most important system because it is the one that generates most of the value-adding products for the organization, and it involves most of the key functions within the organization.
