Innovation is today where quality management was 25 years ago. It is often confined to a small group of people in your organization—these great ideas and useful approaches are not always well publicized and do not always engage all of your people. Innovation can also mean different things to different people. To be successful, innovation—like quality—needs to engage everyone. To consolidate the Innovation Body of Knowledge, the ASQ Innovation Division is tapping a wide range of innovation thought leaders and practice leaders to find what works well, how success has been generated, and how successful approaches can be employed more widely. Not every method will work well for everybody, but there will be tools and techniques that you can use in your own work environment.
