Innovation management refers to a systematic process of promoting innovation strategies in organizations to plan, organize, manage, and control various ideas for internal co-innovation and open innovation from social media networks and communities. These innovation strategies help in shaping structure and business processes of organizations by the successful implementation of new ideas that are formulated as innovations. Innovation management solutions majorly focus on adding value to customers, employees, citizens, students, and faculty, among others. The innovative ideas, experience, and knowledge sharing not only results in value addition to organizations but also brings a sense of engagement among employees and customers of organizations, thereby promoting a culture of efficiency, workplace innovation, and continuous improvement. In addition, organizations make use of crowdsourcing techniques to share, collaborate, evaluate, prioritize, find, and carry out advancements in the innovation management solutions.
