Message

In the age of systematic innovation

Innovation is a knowledge-creation activity, forging new value under conditions of uncertainty through a dynamic process of trial and error.

It is widely acknowledged that innovation is often accompanied by failures. However, these failures serve as valuable feedback, continuously revealing and confirming unexplored opportunities.

However, the probability that internal and external innovators and entrepreneurs with insights and ideas will succeed individually is low, and proper organizational support, rather than relying solely on their motivation, is essential.

While top management's commitment to innovation is a prerequisite, it must be complemented by a vision, strategic approach, defined objectives, resource allocation, and appropriate structures to sustain this dedication.

This is where innovation management, and an Innovation Management System (IMS) that makes these efforts effective and efficient, come into play.

Today, systematic efforts in fostering innovation are spreading globally, exemplified by the ISO 56000 series of international standards for IMS.

Innovation is not confined to sporadic events or technological advancements alone. Instead, it should be placed at the heart of management activities and is indispensable for companies and organizations to sustain themselves in society and the marketplace.

We are now in the era of the innovation economy, where innovation is needed and deployed regardless of the size of the companies.

As Japan's representative to the ISO committee for IMS, JIN is committed to supporting companies in their evolution toward the management system of the future—an intellectually creative organization. We seamlessly integrate innovation management systems with conventional frameworks, ensuring sustained growth and success for your organization.

Introduction

To improve the success rate of innovation

JIN represents Japan in the technical committee of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for Innovation Management Systems (IMS) as the exclusive national institution. In this capacity, JIN takes an active part in developing international standards for innovation management system, gathering local perspectives, and engaging in international negotiations.

With a wealth of experience in supporting the acceleration of innovation in large corporations and backed by its worldwide network, JIN, as the scheme owner of the ISO 56000 series in Japan, has accumulated numerous successful cases for "IMS design support", "IMS implementation support" and "ongoing support and IMS networking" working closely with corporate executives, middle and junior managers.

What We Do

Need help with innovation? You can rest assured now.

Ambidextrous Management

People often talk about "ambidextrous management" for their company, but what exactly should we do?

Establishing an innovation promotion system

We want to build a full-fledged innovation promotion system, but where do we start?

Acceleration Program Design

We don't know how to proceed with the international standards. We want to proceed in a way that is best suited for our company.

Education Program for innovation

We don't know how to educate people to become innovative. Does JIN offer any educational programs?

Identifying areas for improvement

We’ve invested heavily in technological development and R&D, but failed to see tangible results. We want to investigate & solve the issues.

Turning Ideas into Results

We are having trouble getting any results from our idea generation workshops. What should we do?

Ongoing Support

In order to continue IMS activities, we would like to receive ongoing support.

Company-wide deployment of innovation activities

Innovation activities are run by a few departments and volunteers. Shouldn't we expand them company-wide? How about other countries?

Issues of the current promotion system

Despite our years-long operation of an innovation promotion system, it’s not yielding any results. We want to investigate & solve the issues.

Find out more about ISO 56002

We would like to know more about ISO 56002. The word "ISO" sounds troublesome and makes us feel defensive.

ISO 56002 Assessment

We want to compare our company's approach with ISO 56002 and improve as much as possible. What should we do?

Leveraging the SDGs

We are working on the SDGs, but we don't know how to proceed. We want to know how the UN is working on it.
