During the Business Process Usually, if you ask any colleague why they work a certain way they will tell you it’s because they’ve always done it that way. Believe it or not the structure of your organization impacts how you do the work you do. Internally your organization is structured to work a certain way and, hopefully, it maximizes efficiency and effectiveness. The way the information flows throughout a business fundamentally determines the success of its output. A few examples of innovation in process management are based on challenging the current way of accomplishing business and prioritizing the flow of information and outputs.

Social media became catalyst to many great ideas, and the enabler of many bad ones. But like so many major paradigm shifts, we lose perspective as the years pass. Our institutional memories are shortened with each passing year and we forget the technologies and social shifts that previously turned an entire industry on its head. Just like we forgot about the population shift of the 1970s, we will soon forget about life before Facebook and MySpace and Twitter and lose perspective on the scope of change that these technologies brought to our industry.

So, in order to understand innovation, it is also wise to look at what innovation is not. Understanding the difference will help you better recognize breakthroughs when you see them in your organization. What Innovation Is Not At the most basic level, things are not innovative when they do not leverage new ideas, new uses for old ideas and technologies, and/or fail to deliver value to the end consumer or constituent. We think that most of what is called innovation these days is not much more than the repackaging of old technology, stale ideas, and product feature developments that truly add little value to the consumer.
