What is meant by PRODUCTIVE INNOVATION?

Fellow Innovators

The word productivity is often associated with the efforts to stream line and lower cost/effort for Manufacture or Delivery of a Service. Yes, there is some innovation which occurs there to continuously improve those process / materials / skills or whatever to drive up efficiency or capacity utilization lower scrap and rework and improve quality standards. All of those efforts are very important.


We tend to view the INNOVATION LIFECYCLE as the collection of work processes from STARTing with ideas through BUILDing and developing culminating with MARKET LAUNCH/LEVERAGE. Making this activity system productive has many associated challenges given the fact that it is a fundamentally human process occurring in a social/organizational context.
