tested with 6 cases, involving different kind of companies in the region of
Barcelona. The innovation model and its online tool version have been

designers, experts and managers in the evaluation and discussion of all the
relevant topics of an innovation project oriented towards the creation of a
new product and/or service. The first part of the paper is devoted to expose
the theoretical backgrounds that define the interdisciplinary research field of
this work. In the second part of the paper Innovation Consensus Model is
presented and the functionalities and characteristics of the CID online tool
explained. In the last part the results of the experience are summarised.
The final conclusion is that it’s relevant and very useful to get professionals
efficiently and effectively involved and participating in the processes of
decision making in innovation project management. The online strategy
