Why Innovation Management?

  • Companies find it difficult to compete in the domestic and international markets because of their limited resources and traditional business methods.
  • Innovation provides the opportunity to be competitive in international arena. It constitutes a valuable input to the business strategy for being more competitive.
  • Planning new products, services, brand extensions, or technology inventions are not enought to stay alive for SMEs. Innovation management clearly benefits imagining, mobilizing, and competing in new ways.
  • Innovation has lead to significant improvements in the way businesses operate and has closed the gaps between different markets.
  • In Turkey, there is no comprehensive “Training Program for Innovation Management” which provides broad know-how on innovation management supported by real life cases.
