The market environments and customer needs are continuously changing. In order to sustain growth, keep costs under control, deliver on quality, handle legal and environment requirements, manage the operations and deal with complexity, uncertainty and competition, innovation is key. But defining innovation is a challenge, and depends on the maturity levels of the organization. The approach to drive innovation programs in an organization is Innovation Management.
