Welcome to the Innovation Portal!


(Stop press!  In order to try and improve the navigation we have been moving resources over to a new site with a better search engine.  If you’d like to explore this please click here.


Otherwise feel free to explore this site which we will continue to support.


We originally developed this resource for those like us who are involved in the teaching, learning or practice of managing innovation, and more specifically to support our books:

Strategic Innovation Management (1st edition, 2014),

Managing Innovation (6th edition, 2018)

Entrepreneurship (2018) and  

Innovation & Entrepreneurship (3rd edition, 2015).  

The function and contents of the Portal are continually being updated and we’re always open to new ideas.  On the site you can find a variety of open resources including:

  • Case studies
  • Media clips, video and audio
  • Innovation Tools
  • Activities for individuals and groups to help explore aspects of innovation management

In addition there are support resources for instructors including:

  • Questions and assignments plus a Test Bank of 200+ Q&A
  • Instructor resources, including suggested course outlines, content and PowerPoint packs.These are password protected; please contact us for access details)


One way to begin to explore these rich resources is to click “Books” in the top banner, online resources and then the “by type” button on the left, or try the Toolkit tab or new Search function. You can also search by theme or tags by clicking the buttons on the left.

If you have resources which you would be prepared to share please contact us.

We look forward to building this shared open resource with you.
