Innovation Management

We, IMP³rove – European Innovation Management Academy, define Innovation as the successful exploitation of a new product, service, process, organisation or new business model which is new to a company, new to a market, or new to the world. Our daily work is based on the conviction that innovation is manageable rather than a result of purely accidental circumstances. Our experiences with clients – may those be private or public organisations – confirm that the alignment and proper management of innovation strategy, innovation organization and culture, innovation processes and enabling factors significantly enhance innovation results.

Currently, we are involved in the development of the ISO standard on innovation management. We have further been convener of the working groups on CEN level. As a result the CEN/TS 16555-7 on innovation management assessment has been published. The IMP³rove Assessment of companies' strengths and weaknesses in innovation management is compliant with these standards.

IMP³rove Approach

The IMP³rove Approach integrates innovation management assessment, capability-building based on our training and certification scheme as well as consulting and technical assistance of innovation actors.
