What is Innovation? 

Innovation is the buzzword of the moment, but what does it mean for business? Innovation doesn’t always have to be the blue-sky ideas; it can be about incremental changes to improve processes and productivity. It can be introducing new ideas, methods, products, services, or processes that result in improvements or advancements within a business. The business idea must be “innovative” (novel and pioneering) and more than merely “new to the company”.
