Abstract: The survival of enterprises depends heavily on their ability to innovate. As the world becomes increasingly global and the development of new technologies is accelerating, the ability to innovate effectively may be even more important in the future. However, innovation management can be difficult and many managers feel frustrated that there is no clear method for doing it. The purpose of this study is to investigate the current state of innovation management of some enterprises in Vietnam and identify the main factors that affect innovation management in Vietnam's businesses. The reality of innovation management was analysed by a survey on innovation management of businesses in Vietnam based on dimensions specified in the innovation management standard ISO 560002. The survey result shows that many of the innovation elements in ISO 56002 are found in the practices of leading enterprises in Vietnam and that in Vietnam, larger-sized firms tend to struggle to apply the requirements of ISO 56002.
