Innovation and positioning

Innovation is the most direct route to domination. An enterprise with a new product is, by definition, the sole supplier in the market. Innovations can be product innovations, product-service innovations, or process innovations. An enterprise may find it expensive to engage in R&D to innovate. However, an enterprise should at least track the scientific advances for all its product, service and processes as an integral part of managing a business.
