ISO 56003:2019 Innovation management — Tools and methods for innovation partnership — Guidance

Organizations always look at sustainable development as a new approach and a necessity for life and ability to compete continuously, therefore, they consider internal and external cooperation and partnership as an efficient and effective tool to achieve this important goal.

Innovation through partnership and collaboration brings many benefits and helps organizations move towards sustainable development quickly. By participating in innovation, stakeholders will achieve what they want faster, so they will seek more collaboration. Open innovation, which has a trans-organizational concept, also refers to the fact that organizations must achieve innovation agility and sustainable development through cooperation and communication outside the organization.

In innovation partnership and collaboration, regardless of the results, the organization and stakeholders should be sufficiently aware of the framework, concepts, rights, and all that they may encounter in planning and implementing innovation collaboration or partnership. In this way, the benefits are as optimal as possible.

ISO 56003 provides a framework, methods and tools for cooperation and participation in innovation as a guidance document. This document addresses issues such as measuring partnership entry, challenges and interactions between the parties, and includes different types of innovation collaboration and partnership, regardless of the type and size of the organization, such as:

A) Start-ups work with larger organizations;

B) SMEs or larger organizations;

C) private sector organizations, government institutions or science and technology centers;

D) Public, academic or non-profit organizations.

Participating in innovation begins with analyzing the gap, followed by identifying and interacting with potential innovation partners and managing the interaction between them. It is worth noting that the nature of innovation partnership is that all parties benefit from working together in the midst of the opportunity for innovation.

The benefits of innovation participation include the following:

– Access to knowledge, skills, technology and other intellectual assets that are not available within the organization;

– Access to infrastructure resources, such as: laboratories and laboratory equipment to produce new products and services or improve them.

ABSTRACT 

This document provides a guidance for innovation partnerships. It describes the innovation partnership framework (see Clause 4 to Clause 8) and the sample corresponding tools (see Annex A to Annex E) to

— decide whether to enter an innovation partnership,

— identify, evaluate and select partners,

— align the perceptions of value and challenges of the partnership,

— manage the partner interactions.

The guidance provided by this document is relevant for any type of partnerships and collaborations and it is intended to be applicable to any organizations, regardless of its type, size, product/service provided, such as:

a) start-ups collaborating with larger organizations;

b) SMEs or larger organizations;

c) private sector entities with public or academic entities;

d) public, academic or not-for-profit organizations.

Innovation partnerships start with a gap analysis, followed by the identification, and engagement, of potential innovation partners and the governance of their interaction.

NOTE The essence of an innovation partnership is for all parties to mutually benefit from working together in the context of an opportunity for innovation.

This document is not applicable to organizations seeking innovation by merger or acquisition.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

Introduction

Innovation partnerships are developed to create value for each partner working together.
Benefits of an innovation partnership include
  •  access to knowledge, skills, technology and other intellectual assets that are not available within the organization, and
  •  access to infrastructure resources, such as experimental laboratories and equipment to develop new or improved product and services.
This document provides recommendations for engaging in external partnerships to realize innovation. The corresponding tools and methods are detailed in Annex A to Annex E.
This document relates to the ISO 56000 family of standards, developed by TC 279, as follows:
  • a) ISO 56000, Innovation management system — Fundamentals and vocabulary provides the essential background for the understanding and implementation of this document.
  • b) ISO 56002, Innovation management system — Guidance provides guidance for the development, implementation and maintenance of an innovation management system, to which all subsequent standards of the family, are complementary to.
  • c) ISO 56005, Innovation management — intellectual property management — Guidance provides guidance on how to use intellectual property to achieve business objectives.
