7 principles

What do innovative organisations have in common? Apart from being ambitious, organisations that excel at innovation are guided by 7 principles defined in ISO 56002: realising value, providing future-minded leadership, determining purposeful direction, nurturing an innovation culture, gaining exploitable insights, mastering uncertainty and enhancing their adaptability. The new standard helps you turn these guidelines into daily actions.
