To be innovative is to introduce something new; to do something in a new way; to create new ideas about how something can be done; to make improvements in processes by creating change in that which is already established; to make positive changes in the status quo; to create what didn’t previously exist.
Rapid Innovation is the act of creating a culture and environment of innovation and continuous improvement by promoting vibrant, collaborative, and integrative work environments that possess an inherent commitment to service by every employee.
