According to Wikipedia, “innovation is the creation of better or more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are readily available to markets, governments, and society. Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of better and, as a result, novel idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself. Innovation differs from improvement in that innovation refers to the notion of doing something different (Lat. innovare: “to change”) rather than doing the same thing better.”
The need for innovation consistently ranks as one of the most critical issues facing organizations today. Research has shown that high-performance organizations place greater emphasis on innovation than other companies.
