What is innovation? In a simple description, Innovation is the change that creates values.

There are 4 steps to innovate which are
1. Conception: Clarify objectives, needs & constraints
2. Creation: Create a portfolio of breakthrough ideas; prototype.
3. Conversion: Review the original objective and then choose the best idea and execute it. Seek feedback from the end-user.
4. Connection: Connect your solution to the customers/community to generate value.
