Defining Innovation

We often toss around the terms “innovative” or “innovation” when describing companies, products, services, or experiences. It almost seems as though the term(s) are overused. In fact, a Google search for “innovation” returns over 97 million results! If you’re one of those that throws around the term, have you ever compared the definition of “innovation” to see if it actually fits? That could prove confusing too since there are over 18.8 million search results for “definition of innovation”. If we use the Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s definition of “innovation”, it would be described as “the introduction of something new [or] a new idea, method or device”.

We often toss around the terms “innovative” or “innovation” when describing companies, products, services, or experiences.  It almost seems as though the term(s) are overused.  In fact, a Google search for “innovation” returns over 97 million results!  If you’re one of those that throws around the term, have you ever compared the definition of “innovation” to see if it actually fits?  That could prove confusing too since there are over 18.8 million search results for “definition of innovation”.  If we use the Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s definition of “innovation”, it would be described as “the introduction of something new [or] a new idea, method or device”.

That definition sounds pretty fair, right?  Using that as the foundation, we’re proud to launch the OnInnovation blog.  We hope to use our little slice of the blogosphere to spark conversations, start new ideas, create new methods and provide a resource that will help you to be innovators within your companies or industries.  Sound fun?  Yeah, I think it does.  So, would you join me in this journey by subscribing to the blog?

If you’ve stumbled over here and haven’t checked out our main website, there’s a group of folks that have been innovators of some of the companies and technologies that we rely on in our lives on a daily basis.  I encourage you to go check out some of the videos from innovators such as Pierre Omidyar, Mitchell Baker, Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and many more.

Lastly, do you have a passion for exploring innovation?  If you’re shaking your head up and down as fast as possible, I’d encourage you to apply to become a contributor around here.

Thanks for joining us on this ride.  We look forward to being your resource for innovation.  If there are topics that you’d like to see us cover, let us know in the comments.
