What is Innovation?

Innovation is defined as the process or ability to create something new. This could be an idea, a methodology, an application, or a concept that can be implemented to create a truly unique product, service or offering.

To John, ‘innovation’ is the driving force for progress. Without it, the products, services, technologies and applications we see today wouldn’t exist. When infused in current, present-day decision-making, innovative thought and application can lead to finding new and better ways to solve problems, serve society, and meet the needs of customers and stakeholders.

To John, ‘innovation’ is about more than just thinking differently:

For businesses that are creating, producing and executing in today’s world, who want to remain relevant and profitable in the future, innovation is key to the success of their livelihood.

As today’s rapidly changing business landscape evolves at super speed with the onset of technology and artificial intelligence, businesses and organizations need to infuse innovation into all processes. This will help them evolve alongside markets and consumers so that they can maintain a competitive edge and stand the test of time.
