Background & Context

Talented, innovative workers seek out innovative companies where they are certain they can learn and grow. Companies that do not value innovation experience high attrition rates of talented staff.

In the current uncertain business climate fraught with massive technology, social and economic change, the status quo is not an option. 

Businesses need to operate in a way that secures revenues for today, whilst simultaneously keeping an eye on the future by engaging in innovation activities.


Maybe one of the biggest risks to a business today is not that it attempts to implement something new by innovating, but that it doesn’t.


Engaging in Innovation has proven to be a tried and tested approach to improving market penetration, money and time savings and business expansion.


Why?

Because it calls on everyone in the business to look at things from a different perspective, which leads to the generation of creative insights resulting in the solving of problems.


Innovation creates opportunities and new jobs and activities. There is no set way to approach innovation, and each business will adopt the approach that is right for it. 


The results of innovation activities include, and are not limited to:

Enhancements to products and/or services
Changes to the business model
A change in direction for the business
Improved processes


With this in mind, and in a global and highly competitive marketplace, businesses can no longer be complacent.
