Creativity and Innovation

Innovation is the key to growth; it brings market advantages related to customers and competition and workforce advantages related to talent and performance. But perhaps the i4cp/AMA study says it most succinctly: "...innovation is a prerequisite for success--and perhaps even for survival."

Far more than the traditional view of R&D geared toward breakthrough discoveries or incremental product enhancements, today's focal point is on enterprise-wide innovation, recognizing the importance of creative thinking in every aspect of business. It is in a firm's processes, operations, organizational structures, and business models that innovation can truly become a differentiator.
