This course is very detailed and provides excellent insight into how the ISO 56002 standard can be applied. It goes beyond the checklist nature of it to help you understand the relevance of the different sections and key things to think about in designing an innovation management standard, especially to be compliant with the standard. The additional information around leadership was very useful as well, to help innovation leaders consider how they can improve their own leadership competencies. I will be referring back to this course many times over as I apply the lessons to my innovation work.Read Less

It is very interesting. It provides me with a deeper understanding on what really is innovation, its prerequisites, benefits and what it takes for organizations to harness a mindset towards innovation... It must be embedded in our company culture if we must stay in business. More complex than I thought but an eye opener.Read Less

The insights around leadership were particularly useful to me in providing some clear guidelines on where to improve my own innovation leadership skills.
Having taken the course, I plan to use the material to improve the systems in my work and provide more structure around our processes, even if not yet planning for full adoption of the standard. The course will help a lot with guiding how to structure a solid innovation management system that can create real results."
I appreciate that ISO 56002 takes a holistic view of innovation management systems, extending beyond the organisation and its core business to also consider the external environment and context, through to end users and customers."
Taking this course had a direct impact on my career and way of working. Firstly, it helped me better qualify work activities that I was already doing with a pattern very similar to that of ISO 56002. Secondly, I could build my ISO 56002 "quality manual", specifically built to follow innovation projects. Thirdly, but not least, writing academic articles on innovation based on the content and techniques described by ISO 56002."
"The direct insight I got from this course is that any organisation that fails to innovate stands the risk of self extinction. I will apply every bit of my learning outcome to the way I run my department, my dealings with our internal and external customers and new products design."

The lessons learned during this course will go a long way in my innovation work. Thank you Eicorn!"
It turns out that at least 70% of all innovation programs fail, and that only 6% of business leaders are satisfied with the results of their company’s innovation work.
In our view, this confirms that corporate innovation is broken.
At Eicorn, we think that this is completely unsustainable. The waste of scarce resources, talent and time must stop immediately and be redirected towards value creating activities. Wouldn’t you agree?
Not just because waste is stupid, but more importantly, because we are convinced that innovation is the best tool, besides from politics, to overcome many of the world’s present challenges, and to create a more sustainable society.
We were super-excited to learn that there is now an ISO-standard in line with what we believe in, and we want to make sure that this spreads and gets deployed throughout the world.
ISO 56002 is a guiding standard on how to build innovation management systems, and part of the ISO 56000 innovation management series.
As described by the International Standards Organisation:
“[The]… document provides guidance for the establishment, implementation, maintenance, and continual improvement of an innovation management system for use in all established organisations.”
The standards cover the following areas:
- Processes & Structure
- Internal and external forces
- Performance measurement
- Continuous improvement
The world is experiencing an unprecedented rate of disruptive technological, social, and environmental change. The predictability of the past is gone.
The world is changing fast, and this shows in the data:
- Only 44% of today’s industry leaders have held their industry leader position for at least five years, compared to 77% 50 years ago
- The gap in profitability between the top- and bottom-quartile has almost doubled in 30 years
- GDP growth has declined by more than 1/3 in the past decade
- One out of three public companies will cease to exist in their current form over the next five years- a rate six times higher than 40 years ago
And corporates have a hard time to cope with this increased rate of change:
- 6% of all business leaders that are satisfied with the results of your company’s innovation work
- 70% of all innovation- and 70% of all digital change programs fail
- 95% of all product innovation fail
And this is where the 56000 innovation standard series can play a vital role:
- Alice de Casanove, Chair of the ISO technical committee responsible for the standard, says "all organisations, whatever their nature or size, need to continually evolve in order to survive, and the ISO 56000 series will help them to do that in a structured and effective way.”
- ISO 56002 as described by ISO: “The purpose is to provide guidance on how an organisation could build and what needs to be addressed to build an innovation management system without detailing the specific system itself.”
