Victor Edozien: More Tips on Innovative Management

Asaba Group Holdings continues to seek innovative solutions to problems that will enhance their company's viability as well as develop their clients' experience with the company through the services the company provides.


Here are more vital steps you can take to develop your business management:


1. Innovation is beyond invention


Invention commonly refers to the creation of something new or novel while innovation involves improving upon something that already exists. But if we observe King Solomon's wisdom, nothing new is ever created and so we end up equating invention with innovation. Nevertheless, innovation, as it is applied in the modern context, requires going beyond the mere creation of something that has not been conceived or produced before by humans.


2. Innovativeness should become an acquired habit


The desire and discipline to attain excellence is never an inborn quality. Children either catch the ability to be creative from somewhere or they are taught to become so. Even prodigies need to hear or see something before they can acquire some proficiency in certain artistic skills. In general though, creative or innovative genius arises because there is a need or the desire to achieve something extraordinary.


3. Develop innovation pioneers


As in many human endeavors, innovation also requires the presence of people who seek ways to solve certain problems in simple or ingenious manner. These thinkers can be radical, rebellious and even destructive in the way they approach things; however, allowing them to do what they do best can bring about the necessary improvement in the general environment.


4. Conduct trial-and-error runs to ferret out errors


Brainstorming sessions can provide as many innovative solutions to a particular problem. However, trimming down the list to a few possible and least risky will suffice to propel the process toward a positive outcome. Taking into consideration profitability and efficiency in the implementation, the organization can then choose one or more of the remaining solutions to achieve maximum productivity.


5. Instill creative competition


Finally, in order to sustain an atmosphere conducive to innovation, an organization will do well to select people who have diverse talents and disciplinary backgrounds in order to maintain a broad base for addressing issues. When each distinct perspective is given the chance to present the problem, a more synergistic and encompassing solution will arise.
