Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


In this chapter, we provide a background view and insight into the development of innovation management research, in particular, and discuss the outlook an application of an innovation management system may have, both for organisations and research. The chapter explains how innovation management research is well-developed, but often done so for a single phenomenon; and rarely analysed in research from a systems perspective. This can make the coupling between research and practice difficult (or at least misunderstood) because innovation practice happens in a system. The ISO 56002 brings about an opportunity to systematically discuss innovation research from a systems perspective and can act as a catalyst for better integration of theory and practice in innovation management.
