A new standard for protecting intellectual property in innovation just published.
Whether you are operating a large corporation or a small/medium business, innovation is the driving force for a successful business. All companies innovate. Some do not realise how much. The most successful companies do a good job recognising what innovations provide a competitive advantage and properly protecting those innovations.
Managing the IP at every step in the innovation process makes good business sense and helps to generate a true incubator in which creativity can grow.
The good news is that a new standard for protecting intellectual property in innovation has been published by ISO.
ISO 56005, Innovation management – Tools and methods for intellectual property management, provides guidelines and strategies to help organisations protect and maximise their best ideas. You can see all ISO 56000 standard family here: ISO Webpage
