The Vietnam National Productivity Institute (VNPI) benefited from face-to-face (F2F) APO Technical Expert Services (TES) on Advanced Innovation Management, 6–10 June. The onsite services marked the restart of F2F APO activities after a two-year pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Training in and disseminating standards of innovation management systems are an effective way to help enterprises recover from pandemic-related restrictions and stagnation. Traditional F2F training has the advantage of providing personalized guidance for businesses.
Innovation management is a key driver for organizations to create value from new products, services, processes, or business models. However, they need to be managed systematically. The purpose of a business continuity management system is to prepare for, provide, and maintain controls and capabilities for managing an organization’s overall ability to continue operations during disruptions.
