Technology and Innovation

Innovation and Technology are key drivers of competitive advantage and long-term success for companies in today’s global knowledge economy. Innovation is the process of translating an idea or invention into a good or service that creates value or for which customers will pay.

In business, innovation often results when ideas are applied by the company in order to further satisfy the needs and expectations of the customers. In a social context, innovation helps create new methods for alliance creation, joint venturing, flexible work hours, and creation of buyers' purchasing power.
