What is Innovation?

The process of translating an idea into a product or service that creates value for which customers will pay.To be called an innovation, an idea must be replicable at an economical cost and must satisfy a specific need.

In this age of rapid change, those who lag behind become irrelevant – in a heartbeat. The choice is simple: innovate or become irrelevant,”

– H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Prime Minister and the Ruler of Dubai.
