Sample text

We cannot know what everyone is thinking, but we do know that when people see an object that meets their needs, they can identify it as innovative. We cannot design a product, technology, service, or process that everyone will acknowledge as innovative. We can design a product, technology, service, or process that meets the largest number of needs by outperforming its predecessor. By doing such, we will leapfrog competition and establish ourselves as a leader and innovator. Summary Defining how individuals perceive innovation as well as using the “means” of innovation was the primary focus of this ­chapter.

It is not the size or the cost of procuring an innovation that is important; rather, it is the positive result and identified benefit received. The consensus seems to limit innovations to inventions, which may be the reason it is often so infrequent. Within the business and academic community, the meaning of innovation expands beyond inventions to uses and applications. This expansion of what innovation means places this concept at the heart of the business’s or organization’s core strategies. Rather than existing as an infrequent event with limited predictability, innovation becomes a driver (a strategy) in the organization.

For organizations or businesses searching for innovation, we have found you a function for innovation. Innovation is not a special event, a chance encounter, an unexpected discovery. You do not wait for the next invention; you take what you have and make it better. This may seem to go against what you have believed—and it does. Rather than be beholden to pure luck, you have a choice to decide how to apply the innovative skills of the organization to which products, services, processes, or technology.
