Innovation: The Most Important and Overused Word in America
Wired
Innovation has become the buzzword of the decade in the worlds of business and education.
Kasia Hein-Peters's insight:

"...we need people to possess a series of thinking skills and behavioral traits that result in their ability to discover, develop, and test ideas and solutions that will result in positive changes not only their prospective fields but also in their daily lives. Therefore, innovation should not be discussed as a specific term but as a series of skills and behaviors that a person must possess to be innovative."

John Michel's curator insight, November 16, 2013 12:54 PM

Innovation has become the new buzzword, but its overuse and generalization has caused more instances of eye rolling than actual innovation. To get the results we need, the focus should shift from the term to the skills and behaviors that are needed. The word “innovation” is not important. To paraphrase a famous innovator from literature, “innovation by any other name, is just as innovative.”

Kasia Hein-Peters's insight:

Seems like a no-brainer, yet is not done routinely... We think that we know better.
