CREATIVE THINKING AND INNOVATION
Nowadays there is no need to argue about the necessity of innovation. More and more organizations perceive innovation wider than a single step or a concern of one team, responsible for innovation. Innovation in business is any change that helps organization to improve its performance; it is a constant response to changing conditions. Innovation requires different kind of leadership, skills, and tactics. Rather than using slogans or creating particular innovations themselves, innovative leaders build competitive advantage by forming teams that are willing and able to innovate, that learn from their own mistakes faster, more consistently and effectively than their competitors.
Although innovations may be compared to creativity and games in success stories, real process of innovation is chaotic, complex, inconvenient, and oftentimes frustrating. Innovation, however, can be managed systematically, if we know where to look for it, how to look for it, and how to implement it properly. Success of the process is determined by multifunctional teams, their willingness and ability to innovate, rather than employee creativity and talent. After all, innovation is not just an idea, but its implementation, too. While structure, strategy, and culture of particular organization dictate distinctive need, direction, and process of innovation, studies show that organizations create higher value for themselves not by having a lot of ideas, but by successfully adapting and implementing them.
