A failed plan or attempt drives innovation. You make a plan, implement it, invest your utmost effort, but the plan doesn’t help you achieve its purpose. But if you are attentive to circumstances, you come to know the shortcomings in your effort and you try to discard them in your next endeavour with an innovative agility and your plan gets successful this time.
A minute study of the collapse of an idea or plan gives you insights about what went awry and what few things fitted into the scheme of things. A failed effort becomes an experience and exploration if you are on your toes to pick advancements and innovations for your next attempt. In fact, innovations can only be found out through experiments, mistakes and assessments. Corporate populace and especially start-ups are not scared of making errors. They keep on formulating plans and take failures in their stride perceiving them as opportunities. And from opportunities they extract results.
If you in your entrepreneurial journey regularly compare investments, expenses and time to returns, you would most probably keep yourself away from innovations in your system. Also, as a start-up or an entrepreneur, you must not pursue only big and landscape-changing innovations, smaller but frequent innovations or a consistent innovation-centric approach can yield big-time gains. Inventive thinking and effort on a consistent basis creates an in-depth understanding of products or services among organization-members. A great and deep reserve of knowledge towards the initiative and effort is carved in the process. Every product or service is measured on the scale of innovation.
All-in-all, when you incorporate innovation-oriented processes in the daily curriculum of your company, your company’s progress becomes sustained.
