Innovation = Different Ways to Organize

Innovation is not the mere creation of something new, or a departure from the usual. It is a process that creates a relationship between

  1. what was once unquestionably believed
  2. the questions brought forward by current practice and
  3. the determination to resolve those questions

What I like about this understanding: the innovation equation includes people – their beliefs, questions, interest and drive to resolve the tensions.
