Most innovative ideas die in the implementation process. Innovation can be a catalyst to growth. However, benefiting from innovation is a two stage project. The easy part is identifying a new or better way to meet a need in your organization. As Thomas Edison famously said, Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. You need to make sure your team has the mental disciplines and mindset to drive that new idea from concept to completion.
