We help researchers, practitioners and policy makers tackle real-world innovation problems and meet the demand for rigor and impact. We do this by advancing new, often boundary breaking, methods, tools and techniques.
Background: Innovation Management is full of complex and wicked challenges with high levels of ambiguity, fuzzy boundaries and varied and demanding stakeholders. We believe that the innovation management community must push its research boundaries with more cutting-edge skills, tools and techniques.
Goal: Our aim is to bring the full force of the ISPIM community together to tackle real-world innovation problems. Our objective is twofold: 1. to increase the level of scholarship of the ISPIM Community and to enable ISPIM scholars to design, execute and publish research that is more rigorous and impactful; 2. to increase the competence of innovation executives and managers to solve real-world problems using rigorous, grounded methods and tools.
Get Involved: Target audience: Primarily, any level of academic, practitioner and/or policy maker interested in taming difficult problems using design processes and cutting-edge research methods, tools and techniques.
