Innovation - so really - what is it all about?
A ‘buzz word’ some might say, ‘a trend’, others might say, what it is, is the catalyst for future change and growth yet are we over complicating it?
For many businesses, the word innovation is essentially considered some fancy term for introducing technology into their business, yet the reality is it is something far more broader than that. Innovation is the creation of newness, new ideas, new processes, new cultures, new operations, new mindsets, new technologies, new products, new services, new markets, new customers etc.
As the world changes, so too do our customers and therefore to survive, so too MUST our businesses.
Having worked with more than 500 small and medium sized businesses across a 3-year period what is most apparent is how much the word innovation is mis-understood and as a result, a severe number of business growth opportunities are missed.
Are you a business with a track record of success and now facing challenges with sales or reaching the right customers? Are you a business with an idea you are keen to develop yet funds are limited, and you are not sure where to start? Or are you a business ready to launch a product but are struggling with capacity?
These are just some of the business blockages we have met over the last 36 months who with the support of the Innovate 2 Succeed programme, businesses have overcome funding challenges, have connected to their new customers successfully, have found the right market in which to launch their product or service, have introduced faster and more efficient ways of working and all have grown to further their potential, increase business success and feel confident about their future ambitions.
