The most frequently used word now a days is – “Innovation”. Not just in technology companies or startups but every where starting from schools to all kinds of industries and businesses. So what is this Innovation really and why this is such big buzz word now?.
As usual the disclaimer is – I am not THE expert in this area. At least for the sake of the topic, I will try to be myself (this is the case with most of my blogs) with my original thoughts and views. So don’t expect from me to write a structured methodology on Innovation.
Coming back to the question..What is Innovation really and why so much buzz?. I think since the beginning of human brain existence we have been innovating. We are continuously discovering some thing new in every area – science, music, arts, poetry, etc. So honestly Innovation is there all the time. But we have used different names for different era. May be during Industrial era we would have called “Continuous Improvements” or some thing. Human beings never stopped innovating and we will never be…
So why so much more buzz now?. I think this is simply because of two reasons – 1) We have reached a point of advancement where there is less (relatively) need for manual and routine based work – basically moved far ahead of industrial age 2) Now most people can access same information across the globe due to internet.
This basically means Innovation is becoming an essential commodity for survival. Hence you are hearing more about this. Soon Innovation will be no more sexier word and it will become Industrialized.
We go more Inside Innovation….
