The primary functions of innovation are to solve problem and value creation. An innovation skill is the ability to do both of the functions – recognize when a problem require solutions and something potentially valuable is happening and then figuring out how to make it works. The first step is to have a good idea. Good ideas come from having a clear, concise and compelling “hunch” about what people want and need.
“First Principle thinking” means using the first thoughts that pop into your head when you are asked to solve a problem. It is a very useful tool for getting your brain working on a difficult problem and generating ideas.
We have come to these conclusions that organizations should spend less on building the innovation’s capacity. To make success with innovation initiatives, corporations need to consider the innovation ability —the business model, customer experiences, and the service system— that become the value drivers.
