Innovative development has universally valid social value and it is very important today. Its corresponding theoretical base is developing, but there is no clear understanding how innovations are generated and what their genesis is. The description of the life cycle of the creation, development and implementation of innovation usually begins with the words: “Innovation is given”, but who gives it, where and how the innovative idea is born, is not currently the subject of researches and discussion. Therefore, it seems important, first of all, to understand where and how innovations are born, in order to design appropriate information technology for representing the meaning of problem situation in the processes of collective decision-making, and then find ways of managing this process. This article shows that the source of the innovation idea is the problem situation in which the actors turned out to be. It is proposed to use the theory of intersubjective management to solve problem situations and find ways out of them. The development of technological platform for implementing the provisions of the intersubjective management theory is based on the formal ontologies construction. Ontological engineering makes it possible to build a communicative semantic model that integrates all views of actors on the problem situation, which is necessary for the creating of their collective model of the innovation idea at the stage of the innovation origin, preceding its implementation.
