Take a leap of faith… that sounds nice but the reason I want to innovate is to drive better results. And taking a “leap of faith” feels a little uncomfortable if not downright risky when, really, I’m accountable for improving quality, efficieny and sales.

Fortunately, there are tried and true innovation best practices that are available to anyone.
Innovation does not have to be complex. There are simple, practical “back-of-the-napkin” tools you can use to create innovative solutions to both everyday problems and your most important strategic challenges.
In the coming weeks, we’ll explore some of these tools, and in the process help you (and us) become more innovative and achieve the results we all want.
