Get the guidance you need to innovate successfully
In most organizations, getting your innovative ideas implemented in practice means you have to take action. Nothing will happen, unless you champion your innovation project.
You may wonder how to pull that off successfully.
There is only one way to learn how to innovate. No matter how many books or blogs you read or how many courses you take, you only learn by doing. Just like you can only learn how to ride a bike in practice.
Figuring how to innovate is like learning how to ride a bike
