Improving Vs Innovating

There is always room for improvement. Innovations come in all different sizes, sometimes in areas least expected. For most of us, this process involves turning things on their head. We are so busy trying to do this that we almost always forget to notice the small improvements that can be readily achieved.

Improvement is an incremental process, a series of which leads to an innovation. While revolutionizing an industry with a product sounds glamorous and exciting, improving it is as or even more important. Think of this: the computer was an innovation. But it is the constant improvements that have enabled it to reach every home, having the effect that it does.

Given the need of the hour, it might even be fair to say that improvements rather than innovations are what we need. We don’t need more things; we need better things.
