"Innovation is distinct from improvement in that it causes society to reorganize. It is distinct from problem solving and is perhaps more rigorously seen as new problem creation." (Group Partners)
Carol Rozwell of Gartner wrote in her blog:
Innovating is a little easier if we look for the opportunity in change rather than the threat.
The opportunity that Carol alludes to, of course, comes from the new problems created by innovation.
