Abstract: Knowledge management and innovation management are logically linked. However, the alignment of their respective deployment mechanisms is still not obvious. An analysis of the Innovation and Knowledge Life Cycles shows that the Knowledge Life Cycle can be deployed (partially) at each step of the Innovation Life Cycle. This implies that different, specific knowledge management tools could be used to increase innovation. Two knowledge management tools are considered in this paper: roadmaps and conceptual frameworks. A methodology is proposed for using roadmaps and conceptual frameworks within the context of integrated knowledge networks for improving efficient innovation. These two approaches aim to ease the knowledge structuring and identification in order to facilitate innovation. Two knowledge management examples in the financial services highlight how these tools contribute to the increased efficiency of the innovation process, leading to a more mature innovation deployment.
