Turning an idea or new product into a value added prospect to the business is an exciting endeavor to say the least.  That said, innovation is not a simple process and turning an idea into a real, tangible business innovation is a road fraught with obstacles. Innovation requires a great deal of effort and time. It is the process of not simply recognizing a need that’s going unmet but determining the exact steps that the organization must take to meet the need, as well as preparing for potential challenges along the way.

Innovation and Creativity

We all get stuck in a rut within respective departments and responsibilities unable to see the potential for change or growth around us. In these situations, business innovation requires that organizations take an important first step to encourage the fostering and growth of creativity. There are several training providers that offer onsite or in-house programs designed to enliven and engage. Find a corporate training provider offering creativity or innovation events and get your people thinking differently.

The Difference Between Creativity and Innovation

Following from the above, it’s clear to see how innovation is different from creativity. While creativity is an important part of the way we work and live, it is not always the way what organizations, and certainly not everything. Creativity is described as the potential to create new ideas, but does not set the methodology or processes involved in turning those ideas into reality. Innovation, on the other hand, is the process following from creativity. While approaches to innovation are commonly tailored to the company or determined on an industry basis, the general approach include:

  • See
  • Understand
  • Differentiate
  • Lead
  • Model
  • Grow

Disruptive Innovation

Also referred to as revolutionary or discontinuous innovation, is the development of a product or technology that is separate from any pre-existing technology or process. Unlike an evolutionary innovation, in which the new service develops out of a pre-existing technology and unfolds in increments, disruptive innovation takes on tremendously more risk  but promises greater reword. Disruptive innovation creates new markets.

Through the introduction of totally new products or services, organizations are in a position to revolutionize an industry. But while he potential value of disruptive innovation is hard to fathom, the risks and associated costs of ineffective approaches are easy to imagine. Training in business innovation, especially concerning the right approach for revolutionary innovation, can therefore be extremely valuable. Search from the training providers listed above and find the training option in business innovation that you need to propel your organization in a new direction..
