It is quite important for modern day software organizations to remain competitive in the market. Being innovative is, therefore, important for the survival of the organizations. Whereas, in some organizations the processes that lead to the development of innovative products are well-defined, in others there are no clearly established processes. In the latter organizations the innovation activities are either undertaken in a non-systematic manner or there are no clearly defined processes that could lead to the development of innovative products. In such organizations innovation often happens whenever an idea strikes the individuals working in the organizations. This paper presents a model that organizations could use to systematically improve (mature) their innovation activities. The paper also presents a roadmap for the implementation of the model.
