Innovation in your business whether it is in marketing, product development, process improvement or collaboration can be hard. But, it is much needed if we are to stay ahead of our competition and keep our customers happy.
However, I believe that many of us don’t innovate in our businesses as much as we’d like to. I can think of a bunch of reasons why this could be so and what we can do to become more innovative:
With me so far?
So, what if we combined these three elements to help us get better at innovation? Could we practice getting better at innovation and creative thinking by using other departments or businesses as case studies to work on?
Would that allow us to develop our innovative and creative thinking skills in a ‘safe’ way such that we build up enough confidence, experience and a bank of ideas and approaches that we can then, in time, apply to ourselves and our own business?
Would that help us build our innovation and creative muscles so that we can stay ahead of our competition and keep our customers happy?
I’d be interested in your thoughts.
