Welcome to The Centre for Innovative Products and Services
The Centre for Innovative Products and Services (CIPS) at Cranfield School of Management conducts leading edge research on innovation and new product development. It focuses on the issues that are most relevant to companies, uses appropriate research methodologies, and develops management tools and techniques. All of the members of the CIPS Team have direct business experience and so the results of our research are quickly converted into approaches that can help organizations increase their output of innovative products and services. These tools, techniques and approaches are shared through our seminars, in-company workshops and publications. For example, we regularly publish in not only top academic journals but also in the management press including the Financial Times.
Our ideas on innovation management are being applied in the service, manufacturing, public and not-for-profit sectors. So, if you are a manager who wants to improve your organization's performance, or someone who wants to study innovation, we hope our website will provide you with insights into the management of innovation.
