Innovation, or creating new value, is a key driver to success in today's business climate. Sustained innovation is key to sustained success. An Innovation Architecture identifies key elements of activity which are powerful drivers of sustained creativity and innovation, and brings creative order to the innovation process. While not every element may be needed for every innovation, much innovation potential is squandered in environments with often-excluded elements such as Infrastructure, Invitation, and Celebration.
