Business Innovation can, and should be, defined as distinct from general innovation. It is the creation and capture of new value in new ways.
Bringing innovation into your business can help you save time and money and give you the competitive advantage to grow and adapt your business in the marketplace. Innovation generally refers to changing processes or creating more effective processes, products or ideas.
For businesses, this could mean implementing new ideas, creating dynamic products or improving your existing services. Innovation can be a catalyst for the growth and success of your business, and help you to gain a competitive advantage..
Being innovative does not only mean inventing. Innovation can mean changing your business model and adapting to changes in your environment to deliver better products or services. Successful innovation should be an in-built part of your business strategy, where a culture of innovation is cultivated and leads the way in innovative thinking and creative problem solving.
Staying competitive in an evolving world requires and understanding of the art and science of innovation at multiple levels. The key to sustainable innovation in organizations is the “people” side of the equation. Through empowered, creative people you create a culture of innovation at your organization.
