Event Overview

Over the past two decades, there has been a great deal of literature published on innovation and innovation management. Converting a creative idea into reality requires projects and some form of project management. Unfortunately, innovation projects may not be able to be managed using the traditional project management philosophy we teach in our project management courses. Innovation varies from industry to industry and even companies within the same industry cannot come to an agreement on how innovation management should work.
It is inevitable that, over the next several years, professional organizations such as the Project Management Institute (PMI®) will recognize the need to begin setting some standards for innovation project management. This may appear as a certification program in innovation project management or a series of courses. It may also appear as an Innovation Project Management Manifesto like the Agile Manifesto. The greatest innovation in the next decade may be the recognition and advancement of innovation project management as a career. The intent of this paper is to identify several of the differences between traditional and innovation project management along with the accompanying challenges, and to provide the basis for understand the need for some degree of standardization in innovation project management.
