This paper investigates the influence of innovation management tools on product innovation in 84 Peruvian companies that received public funding to carry out innovation projects. The empirical exploratory study is based on a comprehensive questionnaire for collecting data and is analysed using a binary Probit method. The results indicate that although the use of tools is scarce in Peruvian companies, innovation management tools influence product innovation. Furthermore, all the evidence shows that innovation management is important, and therefore the innovation process must be structured and systematized.
