Innovation is excessively personalized. We talk about that person or the other; about that company or the other. Maybe we should depersonalize and open the concept.
New ideas fundamentally emerge from the inside of organizations, from open communities. The key of success is not only having well prepared people, but inspiring enthusiastic people, who is also committed and trained to work in a collaborative way. That is the real key!
And as a proof of inspiration here I leave a reflection: no invention is totally new, it always arises from a previous one.
