Synopsis: Innovation. There is no substitute. All of our greatest achievements have been powered through systematic innovation. Innovative people. With innovative minds. Innovating. Except; no.

It is almost always an invention. What’s the difference? Well, for starters, one you can rigidly control, and one either happens or it doesn’t. One makes money now, and one might or might not be profitable at some point in the future. One is a buzzword, and one is…well…almost impossible to define. Now, which one do you think most businesses are more comfortable with?
Best Bit: “Get the best people. Don’t manage them.”
