Innovations require professional knowledge augmented by personal skills, creativity being the most frequently cited. It is a common misconception that standards limit creativity. The recent trends in management system standards prove that they can be used as best practices in order to improve organizational performance in various domains. The seven parts of CEN/TS 16555 are the precursor of the ISO 56000 series of standards for innovation management systems. The article provides a chronological review of these sta ndards, their relation to the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGs) and the way they can provide benefits for the organizations
