Innovation is about building upon existing foundations, to stay relevant, stay ahead of the pack and to be unique. You must take the best bits of the thing, remove the parts not working, reshape it, test it and trial it, pull apart and fit back together so that it is different and better than before. It requires creativity, imagination, some risk, emotional connection, integrity and finding your core values. This is what I see as innovation and it can be applied to anything!
