Innovation is not an occurrence – it is an attitude.
Though required by everyone, innovation becomes a life line for people who deal with technology, strategy or processes. In the last three decades most of the “maximum impact products “emerged from ICT which changed the way the world works. An innovator need not come up with E=mc2 every time. Ideas, products or processes you come up with could be simple, sometimes even insignificant, can still be counted as innovations as long as they are different. Rather than waiting to come up with something spectacularly great once in your lifetime, your endeavor should be to raise your Innovation Quotient or InnQ gradually by innovating all the time.
