Introduction

Turning ideas into new and better products is important for every organization. As a strategic, customer-driven workforce, innovation has the potential to not only make an organization a forerunner but to set it apart. An innovation of value to the customer, something that will enhance someone’s life, will make an indelible impression and help an organization gain recognition and distinction. For some, becoming innovative means focusing on incremental improvements to stay ahead. For others, it means going for the necessary breakthrough to prevent extinction. More and more organizations are balancing their efforts and striving for both.
