Long-term trends in innovation management
Trends in innovation management as a search term is a stable indicator over the last five years. Along go open innovation, strategic innovation, and other refinements.
Surprisingly, the term “disruptive technology” is both stronger and increasingly applied over the same time span.
As a recent development innovators get increasingly interested in following standards for innovations management systems. The globally converging Standard ISO 56002 “Innovation management — Innovation management system — Guidance” is helping to derive basic requirements out of a first guideline. Furthermore, ISO 56004 (Technical Report) is a quick guide for those who are not sure about taking an in-depth innovation assessment.
In terms of search activity, ISO 56002 sees spikes from its publication in July 2019.
