The commonly adopted project management approach is the stage-gate model, which is not always the convenient approach to innovation projects. The paper objective is to present a qualitative analysis of existing project management approaches and to propose a new hybrid model for effective management of innovation programs based on traditional project management approaches, agile methods to involve the customer, and then lean approach to eliminate waste. The results were illustrated by a new model based on the Japanese P2M (program and project management for enterprise innovation) guide, then combine it with Agile Industrial Scrum method and the agile 3S (scheme, system, and service) model of P2M, and finally with some lean tools and techniques oriented towards the innovation and project management context. Finally, an application case was illustrated where the researchers present the planning of the application of the proposed model on an innovation program in medical waste management field.
