I think frugality drives innovation, just like other constraints do. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out.
Once you have an innovation culture, even those who are not scientists or engineers - poets, actors, journalists - they, as communities, embrace the meaning of what it is to be scientifically literate. They embrace the concept of an innovation culture. They vote in ways that promote it. They don't fight science and they don't fight technology.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
NASA is an engine of innovation and inspiration as well as the world's premier space exploration agency, and we are well served by politicians working to keep it that way, instead of turning it into a mere jobs program, or worse, cutting its budget.
Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.
If you look at history, innovation doesn't come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect.
A spirit of innovation is generally the result of a selfish temper and confined views. People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.
If you open up the mind, the opportunity to address both profits and social conditions are limitless. It's a process of innovation.
Exploration is the engine that drives innovation. Innovation drives economic growth. So let's all go exploring.
Innovation has nothing to do with how many R & D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R & D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.
Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.
Invention is not enough. Tesla invented the electric power we use, but he struggled to get it out to people. You have to combine both things: invention and innovation focus, plus the company that can commercialize things and get them to people.
Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.
The lessons I learned from the dark days at Alibaba are that you've got to make your team have value, innovation, and vision. Also, if you don't give up, you still have a chance. And, when you are small, you have to be very focused and rely on your brain, not your strength.
Basically, to lead without a title is to derive your power within the organisation not from your position but from your competence, effectiveness, relationships, excellence, innovation and ethics.
Robin S. Sharma
I am no longer concerned with sensation and innovation, but with the perfection of my style.
Yves Saint Laurent
I oppose piracy and want to see intellectual property protected because that is what fosters and rewards innovation. But SOPA won't accomplish a meaningful reduction in piracy and causes massive collateral damage to the Internet ecosystem.
There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.
Art begins in imitation and ends in innovation.
Creative experimentation propels our culture forward. That our stories of innovation tend to glorify the breakthroughs and edit out all the experimental mistakes doesn't mean that mistakes play a trivial role. As any artist or scientist knows, without some protected, even sacred space for mistakes, innovation would cease.
Pure innovation is more gross than error.
There has been so much recent talk of progress in the areas of curriculum innovation and textbook revision that few people outside the field of teaching understand how bad most of our elementary school materials still are.
Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.
Companies have too many experts who block innovation. True innovation really comes from perpendicular thinking.
My innovation involved taking an idea from the telecommunications and banking industries, and applying that idea to transportation business.
Frederick W. Smith
If you wait for customers to tell you that you need to do something, you're too late. Good business leaders should be half a step ahead of what customers want, i.e. they don't actually quite know they want it. That's what innovation's about. With Plan A, we didn't wait for the consumers to tell us.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
