Why innovate?

A stake in survival

Today, in a context of increased globalization, competition is more and more intense between companies. Innovation has become a major stake for the survival of any company. Indeed, to face the perpetual changes inherent to their environment and their market, companies are building their growth strategy based on innovation. Whether it concerns startups or large groups, the aim is to create, through innovation, sustainable competitiveness that will protect them against possible risks due to change. Innovation can take place with a number of objectives in mind: improving productivity, creating a more efficient product, reducing costs through digital transformation or other innovative and promising projects.

« Encourage innovation. Change is our life force, stagnation our death knell. » – David M. Oglilvy

Opportunities

« Systematic innovation requires the willingness to see change as an opportunity » – Peter Drucker

Offering strategic services or innovative products is a way to diversify your offer and generate growth for your company. Indeed, innovation can create new opportunities for business development: you can reach new customers, enter new markets and increase your market share. If you are able to offer an attractive innovation and build a coherent growth strategy around it, you can stay ahead of your competitors, and innovation can be a good way to increase your company’s profitability.

Innovation can also be a good way to increase your company’s profitability. Innovation is attractive and helps maintain a quality customer experience: consumers will be inclined to pay more for an innovative product or service.

Types of innovation

An innovation only exists if it is perceived as such by the users concerned. We distinguish 4 main types of innovation:

  • Product or service innovation. The main objective of this type of innovation is to stimulate demand by creating an offer that will set you apart from the existing one.

  • Process innovation. Here, the innovation is applied internally to improve the daily life of your company.

  • Marketing innovation. With this method, you expand your market by selling your products or services through a new sales channel.

  • Organizational innovation. This process allows you to increase the efficiency and the relevance of the relationships between the stakeholders in the creation of value for the company.
