You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new.

Good job, but be sure to get to work right away on a product that will make this one unsaleable.

We can believe that we know where the world should go. But unless we're in touch with our customers, our model of the world can diverge from reality. There's no substitute for innovation, of course, but innovation is no substitute for being in touch, either.

I am like a chief. I like to taste the food. If it tastes bad, I don't serve it. I'm constantly monitoring what we do, and I'm always looking for better ways we can provide financial services, ways that would make me happy if I were a client.

~ Charles Schwab

       

 

There is only one ingredient for innovation and that is the power of the human mind. As long as a company is able to attract, enable, empower and retain the best of the brightest, it will have a play. As long as the leadership of companies ensure that the physically and mentally tired mind that leaves office at whatever 7:00 pm Ė 8:00 pm or 9:00 pm comes back mentally and physically reenergised and enthusiastic to add significant value to the customer next morning, the job is done.

~ Narayna Murthy

    

There are three creativities: creativity in technology, in product planning, and in marketing. To have any one of these without the others is self defeating in business.

~ Akio Morita

 

Innovations never happen as planned.

One of the hardest things about innovation is getting people to accept that the way they work just might not be the best.

~ Thomas Foggarty

   

When you innovate, you've got to be prepared for everyone telling you you're nuts.

~ Larry Ellison

 

We must beware of needless innovations, especially when guided by logic.

~ Winston Churchill
