Should Australia participate in the international development of innovation management standards?
For many years, Australian stakeholders have been actively engaged in the development and adoption of international management system standards to support businesses in a number of key areas: quality, energy, occupational health and safety, and the environment, to name a few.
As Australia's innovation activities exponentially increase, would we benefit from a set of management guidelines specifically focussed on innovation? Does it make sense for Australia to participate in the international development of an innovation management system standard?
Standards Australia has received a proposal to participate on the international committee ISO/TC 279, Innovation Management
We are seeking feedback from all interested parties on whether participation is in Australia’s best interest.
As part of our ongoing efforts to be easier to work with and more transparent, the Incubator is using this proposal to trial the concept of crowd-sourcing approval for project proposals online.
