Innovation is all around us. In fact, everyone innovates, often unbeknownst to themselves. Many mistakenly assume that innovation is either a big capital project, or a figurative bolt of lightning that brings inspiration, or the province of some exceptionally gifted people. This is the myth of innovation.
Those people and organizations that are not beholden to this myth, in fact, have practices and processes that encourage innovation systematically. This is true of manufacturing, high-tech, medical device, or any other industry that keeps evolving to answer the demands of the day, both locally and globally. Those that are mystified by innovation are the ones that resist change, avoid digital transformation, and, over time, become extinct.
