Dr. Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class, states, “Human creativity is the ultimate economic resource. The ability to come up with new ideas and better ways of doing things is ultimately what raises productivity and thus living standards. The great transition … to the current one is based fundamentally on human intelligence, knowledge and creativity.”
Innovation is defined as profitable invention, mathematically represented as INNOVATION = INVENTION + PROFITS. Invention is defined as an act or instance of creating or producing by exercise of the imagination. Invention is scientific creativity that many believe is an activity of mad scientists employed by corporate Research & Development (R & D) departments alone.
