The art and discipline of innovation is not rocket science, but it is powerful enough to build and launch a spacecraft. It’s something we can all learn and practice, given the right understanding and framework. And since innovation is more than just coming up with creative ideas, we need a process that gives us confidence to do our work innovatively and produce beneficial results.
Working innovatively starts with setting a goal, purpose or direction and ends with innovative achievement and new learning. All along the way, we need wholistic versatility and innovative thinking as well as wisdom, knowledge and human values.
