It should be no surprise that modern business success hinges in large part on efficiency—the company whose process is the most streamlined, who gets work done quickly, and who can meet customers’ needs instantaneously has a competitive edge.
You may be interested in increasing your business’ efficiency but have hesitated in making the decision to do so over the worry that effectiveness is often sacrificed in pursuit of efficiency. This may be the case for many traditional solutions, but there is a way to improve effectiveness and efficiency, helping you stand out against your competition: Innovation.
Innovation allows for flawless execution and business growth in areas that your competitors have not yet entered. It is what sets your business apart from others in your industry and beyond.
Whether you are creating a product, providing a service, or both, business innovation is the important concept of developing strategies, systems, or ideas in a way that affects your business growth.
Innovation can mean creating a new management system with functionality that completely changes your company’s ability to respond to problems, thus solving production issues more quickly. It can mean creating an app that takes customer relationships to the next level, allowing your business to rely on a unique utility that your competitors don’t have. One practice, Theory U, is a change management method focused on “leading from the emerging future.” It is a systems thinking process that is used by multiple innovative and corporate endeavors and is intended to lead visionaries in creating new ideas and technology by combining “science, consciousness, and profound social change methodologies.” Learning a new form of systems thinking can help fule innovation.
While the exact character of innovation varies by industry, its value remains constant—it opens the door for your company to become an industry leader. By pursuing unprecedented solutions, your company can be efficient and effective in areas where your competitors are slower or where they make mistakes. This is especially important if your business success relies on an efficiency edge—if your potential customers need your products quickly, your innovations are likely what will drive them to purchase from you rather than your competitors.
