My favorite and I think appropriate definition of today’s innovation come from Clayton Christensen, “Innovation is a change in labor, capital, materials and information into products and services of greater value.”
The old way of describing innovation is a closed one. Innovation used to be reserved only for the techies, engineers, R&D officers and bosses. What’s the new way? Innovation is open for everyone and anyone who wishes to create new value in the societies. Inspiring?
It seems, the high tech innovation that we brag about all these years requires some human touch eh? Yes we do, if we want to make it work and integrating well for long term. One of the tools that you can use is coaching.
