Anyone who has been involved in innovating for any length of time will tell you that innovation is not merely about staring at a problem and “striving” to find a breakthrough solution. Innovations cannot be produced to order. The process is one of discovery. “A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind,” according to Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi, a Nobel Prize winner credited with discovering Vitamin C. Companies who are best at innovation are those that cultivate a perpetually questing, exploratory state of mind and combine this with the vision and the will to do whatever it takes. Columbus set out to discover a new route to the Indies – putting his all into the quest – and stumbled upon America. Innovation is also like that.

The Spirit of

We live in extraordinary times. Globalization and the technological and knowledge revolutions have transformed our world and are inexorably transforming it yet further. In recent years, innovation in companies, triggered by the digital revolution, has attracted huge media attention and led to an explosion of new possibilities for services. But is this fascination with innovation little more than a fad? Out of a million patents filed every year, only 5% of all innovations proposed will ever see the light of day, create value in the real world and make a difference in people’s lives.
