  3. 3. Serendipity! Sometimes creative ideas simply occur to the prepared mind. The 5 Principles that drive Innovation at eBay: 1. Innovation is a mindset. We strive to ensure that everyone in the company is focused on Innovation. 2. Innovation is in the DNA. We build new products with Innovation from the inside-out. 3. Cannibalization does not scare us. We would rather cannibalize ourselves than someone else cannibalizing us. 4. Some people are gifted disruptive innovators. We call them "Baby Tigers". We make it a point to nurture them and give them the room to succeed. 5. There can only be so much structure to creating innovations. We are always open to new ideas and serendipitous finds. Lesson from Meg Whitman (ebay)
