Abstract:Innovation speed slows down as an organisation grows, increasing the chance their existing business model will be disrupted by startups. Various tools and methods exist to support organisations in innovation management. Blockchain is a new technology that could be used in these tools. However, an insufficient amount of material is available on how blockchain features like cryptocurrencies and smart contracts can be used in innovation management systems (IMS). The Lean Startup Methodology (LSM) is a method for innovation management that is getting increasing attention from organisations and researchers. Blockchain features could be used to implement the LSM in IMS. The increased attention from research and organisations on LSM was the reason for this paper’s focus on LSM. The main problem this paper will address is, how blockchain technology can be used in IMS? This research will expand the current knowledge base about IMS. Requirements from the literature on LSM are translated into a framework called the “token value discovery canvas”, which makes it possible to assess the added value of blockchain in the LSM for IMS. The design science methodology will be used to adapt the framework to the needs of the interviewed organisations. This research aims to seek what organisations actually need and help in the development of Nomoni, the first blockchain based IMS.
