Are you sick of hearing about innovation?

Businesses have been yammering about innovation for the last few years. Those businesses that are the least innovative seem to talk about it the most, as if somehow repeating the word will make them innovative. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. It’s a little like sex. Those who aren’t getting any are the ones who talk about it the most, but talking doesn’t make it so. Before I lose you down that path, let’s get back to the concept of innovation.

Catalyst for Change

Individuals and organizations frequently suffer from inertia when it comes to change. Sometimes inertia is good, because not all change is beneficial. In our fast moving and driven culture, we are guilty periodically of assuming that we have to be implementing changes on a personal and/or corporate level constantly or we are not improving. The danger in that mentality is that we implement change for the sake of change instead of carefully considering the action, direction, and anticipated outcome before deciding whether change is required.
