Welcome to World Innovation Congress
"Innovation" - it's everywhere-in print, on the airwaves, on the tips of tongues of managers, and always on the minds of CEO's. Why are some companies more innovative than others? How can we repeat our successes if we don't know what
we did right? What are the theories on how innovation occurs? Are there thinking and management principles that guide cutting edge leaders? What are the practices that embody these principles? How do we integrate these principles with
systems thinking, continuous improvement, or other management philosophies? These are only a few of the questions we can ask to explore the mysteries of innovation.
Are you sure your organisation delivers high impact, sustained innovation that successfully capitalises on new markets and consumer expectations, and drives revenue and growth?
The very nature of innovation demands all those involved to constantly be on the look out for the next big thing. But how do you identify it? How do you know it's not just a fad? How can you ensure that innovation is at the heart of your corporate values?

Invention versus Innovation
Essentially invention and innovation are two sides of coin. They compliment each other and build on each other, yet in some ways incredibly different.
Invention seeks to build on existing knowledge, to make something new or different; innovation seeks lasting synergies and solutions. In other words , invention looks at 'what',
Innovation looks at 'how'. So innovation is not just about "patent for design" but about a profound change in the attitude and approach throughout an organization.
So invention looks for new ideas, new products ,new things; innovation asks: what can we do differently; what can we change; how can we improve but more importantly, how do we implement; how do get our 'solution' into the hands of those who need it?.
