We’ve discussed in the past how crucial new ideas are to the innovation process. However, those ideas don’t always have to come from inside your own head. In fact, learning about new things and the way others do business is a fantastic way to find the inspiration you need to create something new. Education is a catalyst for innovation, enabling you to blend new ideas with your own unique brilliance to create something that could be game-changing for you and your business.
That’s why we spend as much time as we can reading and learning from other innovation blogs around the web. They enable us to keep tabs on what’s happening in the global community, help us keep in touch with the needs of innovation managers and work as a great source of new ideas. Some of the best innovation managers in the world run their own blogs, and we get to see what’s going on inside their heads.
Let’s take a look at our top 5 innovation blogs to learn more about innovation management.
