A critical issue in innovation management is the coupling of two processes: the creation of new technological knowledge and the exploration of value propositions for innovative concepts. This article describes original coupling modalities that rely on new activities – distinct from research and development – and combine different coupling mechanisms put forward in a scattered way in the literature. The analysis is based on the case of a company in the information and communication sector which has initiated a reorganization of its innovation processes to tackle the current context of intense competition and digital revolution.
