Principles of innovation

A working definition of creativity: whatever is novel and useful (Stan Gryskiewicz).

A working definition of innovation: the intersection of invention and business insight.

In order to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion. - Some wise guy

What does innovation look like in your world?
  1. How do you define it?

    The creative process is universal.

  2. How do you measure it?

    It has discrete steps.

  3. How do you replicate it?

    The hardest part of enterprise innovation isn't creating the game-changing product or service.

  4. How do you sustain it?

    It's actually being the organization that can do so, again and again.

  5. How do you scale it?

    Instead of doing everything yourself, you need to build collaboration into your process, to constantly unlock new ideas.
