Innovation Workshop…  A Process for Success

June 4, 2019 | Lewisburg, WV

Why Innovation?

Whether it be identifying new products, or new processes, companies with a focus on innovation realize 50-100% more growth and profit over a three year period.

 

Product Innovation

 

The driving force behind this growth is a common thread between ideas, products, and markets. That thread is often a systematic approach to how companies not only define and evaluate good ideas and their market potential, but also the diversification of existing products and capabilities into new markets as well.

 

Process Innovation

Using a systematic approach to innovate internal processes and procedures is critical to the success of any company. This allows companies to maintain a competitive advantage over the competition by maintaining a stance as industry leaders, leaving the competition to try and keep up.
