The Process of Innovation

Innovation
Innovation is not just a buzzword. It should be thought of as a core competency for all organizations especially
in this changing climate. Innovation is more than inventing, but in many ways it is continuing to reinvent over
time. In the literature it has been referred to as a mindset. Many companies spend millions and billions of
dollars each year on innovation. If organizations do not exhibit the ability to innovate then they will not be able
to compete in this economy. People who set themselves apart are those who can assist organizations to gain
leverage through being innovative.
