Re: Without innovation
That's true. I think what Kanye West fails to acknowledge is the difference between incremental and radical innovation. Radical Innovation is where a company makes a big leap outside of the box to create a new market space, while incremental is where a company works within a pre-existing box. When he discredits innovation, he's really saying that radical gambles such as his most recent album (Yeezus) are often not worth the risk. This principle also applies to business; as you said, it is often incremental innovation (iphone, sliced bread etc.) which garners the most success compared to radical innovation (first mobile phone, first loaf of bread, etc.) However this does not mean that radical innovation should be ignored. Innovation Management platforms such as Qmarkets' can help organisations to generate continued process innovation, while at the same time opening up their ideation process to invite disruptive/radical innovation. There is always room for both approaches!
