Description

Over the last three or four years the term innovation has been spoken about extensively in industrial, academic and professional settings. However, there are misconceptions of two types. On the one hand people with ideas and inventions being portrayed as innovators and on the other hand, people doing genuinely innovative things not being seen as innovators. Both arise due to a lack of conceptual clarity. Therefore, we as a community and nation are not quite sure about whether we’re innovating, and if so, how much innovation is happening.

This talk will set a brief context around innovation, demystify a few common misconceptions, introduce the innovation pathways, and provide a basic usable toolkit to get companies started on the path of consistently successful innovation.
