The aim of this article is to study the role of StrategicScanning in innovation processes. We seek to answer the followingquestion: how can Strategic Scanning feed an innovative designactivity? We mobilized the C-K theory which models the logic ofcreation in companies and the method of the same name. Based ona case study of 65 participants, we conducted a Strategic Scanningstudy to feed an innovative C-K design approach. The results showthat Strategic Scanning helps to provide knowledge in a C-Kprocess. It helps either to build the knowledge base of noviceparticipants, or to validate the existing knowledge of expertparticipants. The Strategic Scanning activity also makes it possibleto start the first disjunction mechanism C→K from the C0concept.
