Jan. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- San Francisco -  The economic recession of the last few years has caused many organizations to squeeze even harder, getting as much juice as possible out of their resources and systems. The name of the game was cost cutting. Now, companies recognize that innovation is key to their success.  Organization strategies are widely embracing innovation - creating products and services that are valued by customers so much they sing its praises. The catch is how to bring about an innovation revolution - how can an organization create an innovation foundation, infuse the culture, and get everyone moving the same direction?
