Tim Castell once said, “Innovation is not just about having an idea, it’s about executing on it to create value.” The three keywords are thought, execution and value creation. Today, we live in a rapidly changing world. Technology and globalization continue to evolve, lessening the gap between customers and companies as customer preferences become more sophisticated and competition among companies increased. In order for companies to gain a competitive advantage in the market, they need to think outside the box and constantly innovate to adapt to changing consumer trends.
