Innovation Defined

Being innovative is being different in a profitable way.

Innovation is a process of taking new ideas through to satisfied customers. It is the conversion of new knowledge into new products and services.

The Jazz of Innovation


Innovation is about creating value and increasing efficiency, and therefore growing your business. It is a spark that keeps organizations and people moving ever onward and upward. "Without innovation, new products, new services, and new ways of doing business would never emerge, and most organizations would be forever stuck doing the same old things the same old way."4

Different Forms of Innovation

Until recently innovation has been seen as the means to turn research results into commercially successful products or services. Today, while research keeps playing its critical role as a major contributor to innovation, many new forms of innovation have emerged. They include system's approach to integration of new technologies and processes from other fields, new business models and ways of doing business, and new ways of reaching and servicing customers.

Entrepreneurial Action the Engine of Innovation

Specific Mindset and Skill Requirements

Innovation demands a different set of management/leadership skills and processes than those required for managing an existing set of operations. Every manager needs to learn how to lead, nurture, and manage innovation. Growing from within through the creation of new processes, products and services is fundamental, because all other growth strategies depend on the capabilities that successful internal growth provides. Growth through innovation reinvigorates your company.

Innovation is not a one-off event, but a continuous response to changing circumstances. Sustainable innovation system doesn't not just help to solve a problem but creates a new capacity, opening up opportunities for further innovation.

It's leadership that makes the innovation process work. Innovation, new business creation, and venture investing are durable innovation strategies of the market leaders.

Value Innovation

The value innovation concept provides a relevant support for questioning product/market strategies as well as underlying assumptions. You must examine radically what constitutes real value for customers by asking fundamental questions: what value offering need to be introduced or increased to meet customer needs? what value offerings can be reduced or eliminated, because they do not constitute real value for customers?...
