Here is an anonymous quotation about innovation that I really like:
Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity - not a threat.
Too many companies and their leaders view all change as a direct threat to their position, power and influence. I see this mindset all the time in the non-profit membership association community in which I work, particularly with volunteer boards of directors. Even board members who work in fields that depend on innovation for success fail to make the connection when it comes to the association they serve, and the consequences are enormous missed opportunities to advance mission and serve their stakeholders.
Regardless of the kind of organization you work for, don't let the innovation naysayers persuade you to the view that all change is threatening. While they may be comfortable with their myopia, The Daily Innovator sees the bigger picture: innovation is about creating a brighter future for your organization and those it serves.
