To innovate ? Why ?

   

Why or What for ?


 

First to differentiate from your competitors and merely better sell your solutions, but also to provide products or services nowhere else available.


Second to be a better performer internally (products, process, services) and because your teams will invest in it (their future).


Third, to let competitors copy or let them able to copy (licensing?) in a new world, full of new opportunities (largers markets, new energies, sustainability ...).

To innovate, this is also transposition of existing solutions in newer domains.


To innovate, this is also to re-engineer standard functions or solutions with new and updated approaches, without waiting to adopt the market standards or the new staff coming with their ideas and knowledges, thus chasing the useful knowledge where it lays.


To innovate, this is obviously find and strengthen new industrial applications to available Research results.


To innovate, this is developping trust and confidence in your teams day-to-day concerns and make their job more efficient.
