For young entrepreneurs and startup founders, innovation has become a key buzzword. While a few companies – Apple, Google, Uber, etc. – are famous for their innovation, it’s just as possible to create innovation in smaller industries and within smaller companies.
A recent study found that the most important step to creating innovation is becoming a disrupter. Disrupters and innovators don’t have to create something brand new; instead, they learn from competitors and leverage successes and experiences to create new approaches to drive customers and create value.
Disrupters, by nature, are always customer-centric. Because of this, it’s crucial to ask the right questions. Innovators don’t simply stop at one solution, but ask “how can we make this better?”
