An academic field called knowledge science has recently emerged that focuses on creativity for promoting innovation. It originated from the combination of ideas from informatics and business science, aiming for knowledge collection, accumulation, utilization, and dissemination, and this was triggered by the spread of the knowledge management movement. The practice of knowledge management, which started in the information industry in the 1980s, was introduced to corporate management in the 1990s and has seen great development. It has gradually been understood that knowledge science is an academic field aimed toward innovation management. This chapter focuses on idea generation models developed in the field of knowledge science.
