Most often, when we think of innovation, we think of new product or technology. Business innovation can be so much more.
For example, the innovation of lean manufacturing has transformed the way many manufacturers organize workflow to make the process as efficient as possible. Also, innovation does not have to be so radical - a series of small incremental improvements is more realistic than attempts at making huge breakthroughs.
