Innovators find new treasures and take as much as they can carry.

"Innovation is change that creates a new dimension of performance." ~ Peter Drucker

Innovation is a process of taking new ideas through to satisfied customers. It is the conversion of new knowledge into new products and services. Innovation is about creating value and increasing efficiency, and therefore growing your business.

Shift to the new knowledge-based economy, combined with a dramatic increase in highly capable global competition, demands a renewed emphasis on innovation. This new economy is characterized by enhanced frequency of innovations, shortening of product, technology, and economic life cycles, rapid generation and commercialization of new technologies, globalization not only large but also small businesses, and enhanced emphasis on business partnerships and strategic alliances.
