Innovation. It’s the buzzword of the moment. Staying relevant to our clients and their ever-changing needs, and the desire to make better decisions based on fact rather than instinct have always been a goal of good businesses. But it astonishes me how many organisations fall back on familiar change levers – looking at new data and big data, advanced analytic capability, emerging algoritms, or technologies such as block chain and artificial intelligence, But these new concepts are not innovation. They are just tools that can help you innovate. They are enablers.
