Richard DeVaul, a leader in innovation teams at the MIT Media Lab, Google, and founder Executive Innovation Consultant, has worked with the smartest and creative individuals in innovation. Richard centered on all the experiences he has had as an executive innovation consultant innovation does not entail what many people think it is. Richard revealed most business leaders and CEOS employ him to build innovation labs, fix broken administrative processes about innovation, and develop innovation teams. They also lack an understanding of innovation since they compare it to the creation and, according to Richard, knowledge it is not.
According to Richard DeVaul, he wants to make the misinterpreted topic relating to innovation be understood. He stated the steps involved to know innovation entails; the first is one has to know the precise definition of innovation; the next step is to see the description that works best in the face of inevitability. DeVaul used the long history of innovation to argue that innovation involves destroying and coming up with new products rather than creating. Richard sees industries avoiding innovation because, at times, being involved in innovation entails a lot, including the company coming up with a new product. At some point, an industry engaged in innovation has to destroy its foundation. Also, innovation industries can’t avoid changes involved with the business.
Richard hopes rather than discouraging people from innovation, making them understand what innovation means is better. Since business leaders having innovative knowledge they can use the knowledge acquired to establish correct innovation strategies for their companies. Richard has confidence when one encounters inevitable changes, one of the problems in innovation. Industries have three directions that they can face according to this inevitable change. Which involves driving it, reacting to the changes, and the last one is getting overwhelmed by the changes.
