8 An innovation can be BIG or small, brand new or bit different, complex or simple. Innovation is NOT invention, an innovation is the extension of an invention. Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have... It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it. -Steve Jobs What Do We Know

30 Share ideas with colleagues to bring change Discuss Innovation Get Engaged

31 Candor In order to get ahead, you need great ideas - lots of great ideas. To get the best ideas, turn your business into an idea machine. Nurture a constant flow of ideas from every level of your organization - not just your top managers. The only way to foster such idea-sharing is to develop a culture of candor, where people aren't afraid to speak their minds. Reward them for their candor, even if it makes themselves and others - yes, you - look bad. Jack Welch
