This report is the result of a study commissioned by the European Commission under the auspices of the European Innovation Monitoring System (EIMS), one of the activities which forms part of the Commission's Innovation Programme. The study was concerned with tools and methodologies used by consultants and advisors working with small and medium sized enterprises to assist them in managing innovation. The main focus was on tools used within the framework of the MINT (Managing the Introduction of New Technologies) action line of the former SPRINT programme together with some other methodologies of a similar type. A selection of such tools was classified, the strengths and limitations of the tools assessed, principles of good practice in their use identified, and general conclusions drawn.
