What does innovation mean to you or why do you consider it to be so important?
Innovation at its core is adaptation. Innovators and those around innovation tend to complicate its meaning and purpose.
Further, I like to break innovation into two categories to help identify opportunity and define purpose.
-Innovating the core business
-Creating new business (biz models, markets…)
