  3. 3. www.InnovationGrow.comThere are plenty of avenues that the governments are beginning to taketo implement the newinnovation processes, across all levels ofgovernment.They are engaging innovation through policies, departments, and thecreating of innovation Labs that foster the development of need ideasand have the resources to make an implementation plan.Just as there is not one solution for every business, all of the differentgovernments have to develop their own unique innovation platformthat works within their constructs but can still get the job done.3

Can it best serve the needs of the public through co-creation? Taking the time to outline the purpose and the goals for theinnovationLab will help you to make sure that it is operating at maximum capacity.5
