Innovation

Innovation is the skill of introducing new things or methods; it is a systematic approach in thinking, allowing organisations to improve performance leading to increased profits.

Innovation does not just happen. There is no 'off the shelf program' to apply. The key to success of companies renowned for their innovative culture is customising other companies' approaches, applying well know systematic creative tools together with introducing structures to support these processes in alignment with their own culture. Thus allowing them to implement these processes to change thinking and drive different behaviours, ensuring different results.
