380 views

Published on

Innovation is about generating out-of-the-box ideas in areas that are considered of value by the target stakeholder.

Many innovators come to grief when they forget to ask the five (5) basic questions before embarking on their innovation journey.

Even established billion dollar corporations are not immune to this as we saw in the recent net neutrality debate related to Internet.org by Facebook.

Ignore at your own peril!

This presentation is part of a series that will be regularly uploaded (with YouTube versions coming soon).
