We can call innovation any change that aims to improve
In its essence, it may concern both technical (technological) and organizational (process) issues. The result of its implementation may be a better product or service, reduction of the company's operating costs or the acquisition or expansion of the market - having a measurable economic effect, as well as having a more moral significance - improvement of staff working conditions, environmental protection, and the popularity of the innovator.
Innovative action can be understood as the very concept and development of an innovative solution (e.g. a new medical device, medicine, medical material, computer program, procedure), as well as the first application in practice of a given enterprise, while these processes can take place simultaneously at the stage of testing or improvement innovation. Over time and the number of implementations, the existing innovation becomes the standard for which further solutions are created.
The main driving force behind innovation in enterprises is market pressure - growing customer expectations to obtain better and better products or services at an acceptable price, with simultaneous competition from other market participants who also want to satisfy these expectations. In addition, innovation can be forced or targeted by external regulators, ordering / prohibiting or rewarding / punishing specific behavior of entrepreneurs, as well as employees expecting that their tools and working conditions will be constantly improving.
The main restrictions on innovation result from uncertainty of the final effect (risk), high initial costs, insufficient competences of people creating or implementing innovation, psychological fear of change, conflict of interests of stakeholders of the "old" and "new" solutions, and formal and legal restrictions arising from regulations applicable in various areas.
During the session, we would like to share our experiences and discuss this topic together.
