As the UK professional body for innovation, we are very pleased to be asked to sit on the BSI/ISO National Technical Committee (TC 279) to share our significant experience in innovation accreditation and benchmarking gained through the Investor in Innovations®, the IKE Assured® and the related professional development programmes.
The TC 279 Committee proposed a series of 7 Standards to act as Guidelines for Innovation Management (Under Development). These guidance standards are:
|1.||Fundamentals and Vocabulary||ISO 56000|
|2.||Innovation Management System - Guidance||ISO 56002|
|3.||Tools and Methods for innovation partnership - Guidance||ISO 56003|
|4.||Assessment - Guidance||ISO 56004|
|5.||Intellectual Property Management - Guidance||ISO 56005|
|6.||Strategic Intelligence Management - Guidance||ISO 56006|
|7.||Idea Management - Guidance||ISO 56007|
The first of these Standards (ISO 50504) has been written up and is at the Committee Approvals stage. Publication of this first Standard is expected in 2019.
The IKE Institute’s Investor in Innovations Standard takes into consideration the TC279 standards guidance and provides an integrated and coherent platform for preparing an organisation to meet the ISO compliancy requirements.
In addition, the IKE Institute’s Certified Innovation courses continue offer a rich source for professional development in the innovation discipline to equip the individual practitioners and business leaders to purse their initiatives and future innovation assessments with confidence.
