Q: What is the biggest myth around innovation?

A: That innovation is a goal in itself. Corporate innovation is about building a business. Not about inventing something new. The work doesn’t stop at the prototype. It doesn't even stop at a product. If it is to be financially sustainable, you have to think beyond that. You have to move a level up and understand how what you do creates value. Not just for the customer but for the business. It is, after all, the business you are in that ultimately pays your salary.
