Your approach to innovation needs to be driven by your “theory of the business.” You need a clear theory about where the best opportunities are for innovation in your markets (product; process; business design). Based on your theory about your business, you need to create clear screens and criteria for your innovation efforts (communicable visions and action plans).

From: An Innovation Framework, a position paper of the Right Place Manufacturers’ Council, John Cleveland.

Another BusinessWeek definition:

Today innovation is about much more than new products. It is about reinventing business processes and building entirely new markets that meet untapped customer needs. Most important, as the Internet and globalization widen the pool of new ideas, it’s about selecting and executing the right ideas and bringing them to market in record time.

In the 1990s, innovation was about technology and control of quality and cost. Today, it's about taking corporate organizations built for efficiency and rewiring them for creativity and growth. “There are a lot of different things that fall under the rubric of innovation.” says Vijay Govindarajan. “Innovation does not have to have anything to do with technology.”From: BusinessWeek, April 2006

Innovation as Language Action definition:

We found that the key is to understand innovation as adoption of new practice. How do we know for sure when an innovation has happened? It is simple: we observe that a group or community has adopted a new practice. The word practice is very important. Innovators induce changes of habit by offering and supporting new tools or processes perceived as high value by adopters. Many people suffer great expense and frustration because they think clever ideas are innovations.

From: Innovation as Language Action by Peter Denning and Robert Dunham, ACM May 2006
