I am writing this to share my knowledge or share my thoughts on what innovation is!
Most of the time, I feel that we get confused with the terms innovation and invention.
The word innovation has its own meaning and definition in every field, it will be difficult to choose one and expresses it. But the first thought that pricks our mind on hearing this word is that we find or explore something new, but it will not explain or seem particularly for all fields.
I feel, rather than giving some fancy definition of the word, we can just tell innovation as taking the existing product and giving it a new life by transforming it to advanced new things. Innovation can be big or small, or it can be taking 2 different products and merging them together just like the sticky notes that we see around us Not only that, we can take the example of our phones only, we had an era where we used wired phones, and after some time and due to increasing efforts of people in and around technology, the wired phones were transformed into cordless phones and now we have the most used and most easy usable device with us that is mobile.
If you all see here, there is only a transformation of learning from a wired to a wireless device. Innovation has 2 strands that are rather interrelated or interconnected. It helps in creating new wealth for us, it improves our well-being, it can do both at once also.
If you are doing any kind of these jobs, brace yourselves, you are already an INNOVATOR.
The only thing that you need to start with is an IDEA, if you have an idea of what how why, and where you can utilize a particular product, you can innovate, and you can bring things to life.
What is innovation?
As I analyze, Innovation is just assembling, disassembling, breaking, and reassembling the materials that we find in and around us to come up with a new different interesting product. I understood that innovation could be done in 3 simple steps that I would love to share with you all.
Steps for innovation!
It goes like this:
These 3 steps can lead to great innovation
The idea what you get is like an egg, and the efforts that we put for that idea to come with the actual product is the hatching of the egg.
Once an idea was born, and that was shared with people around, the people liked that idea and gave suggestions on how to carry forward that particular idea, and that was discussed with mostly like-minded people and experimented on the same lines. Once that was successful, it was materialized and given out as a prototype for the commoners to use and validate it, people liked it and the validation was very much successful and they started liking the product and that simple idea made a lot of sense where people started encouraging it. So it became a new product and new innovation.
Hence, just by sharing your thoughts with others or rather we can tell a like-minded group of people the small spring of idea in you can grow as a big tree of innovation and can help others to follow the same path.
Innovation is not only when we discover or give new products; it might be in any field of writing or any business also, all we need is to have a creative and innovative mind to think out of the box.
Innovation is not always coming up with a new product and adding features to it, it might also be of removing a heavy and complicated feature from the existing products and putting it in a simplified way. The innovation that we do must be economical, easily replicable, and always should serve a purpose.
Innovation can lead to collaborative learning, expressing desires, and making it happen by performing experiments and collective learning.
Innovation or innovator does not really have to be of a certain age or with certain experience, anybody and everybody with the great thinking ability can innovate
So, keep learning, keep innovating, and keep learning, your newborn ideas in a thoughtful and easy way to nature.
What is your idea about this?
