Innovation means much more than just coming up with creative ideas; those ideas have to be put to work to create a benefit. Innovation can be seen as a journey that starts with setting a purpose or goal, and ends up with innovative achievement and new learning. All along the way, innovative thinking is required. So is knowledge. So are values. Renowned innovation authority William C. Miller provides a way to understand the process of innovation itself, and how people of any technical job can apply it to the challenges and opportunities they find in their day-to-day work.
