I recently saw the results of a survey conducted by InnovationLabs called, "Innovation in Tough Times". One key question they asked that got me thinking:
What specific tip would you give your fellow innovators to improve their innovation efforts during tough economic times?
Some answers to this question from the survey:
• Hang in there and keep pushing forward, because it's innovation that will turn this
• Be open, be critical and never stop trying.
• Difficult times create opportunity. Try to focus on where things are going, not where they are
• Focus on all three types of innovations- Product, Process and Management....Then assign priority to innovations based on expected tactical and strategic results
Support your fellow innovators by sharing your own tips, let us know your answers to this question in the comments, we would love to hear from you!
