Innovation is the practical implementation of ideas that result in the introduction of new goods or services or improvement in offering goods or services. ISO TC 279 in the standard ISO 56000:2020 defines innovation as "a new or changed entity realizing or redistributing value". Others have different definitions; a common element in the definitions is a focus on newness, improvement, and spread of ideas or technologies. Innovation often takes place through the development of more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, art works or business models that innovators make available to markets, governments and society. Innovation is related to, but not the same as, invention: innovation is more apt to involve the practical implementation of an invention (i.e. new / improved ability) to make a meaningful impact in a market or society, and not all innovations require a new invention.Technical innovation often manifests itself via the engineering process when the problem being solved is of a technical or scientific nature. The opposite of innovation is exnovation.
An innovative idea, product, or process is characterized by being original, creative, and groundbreaking. It implies introducing new concepts, methods, or design that bring about significant advancements, improvements, or solutions to existing problems or needs. Innovation often involves thinking outside of the box, challenging traditional approaches, and pursuing novel solutions that can lead to transformative changes in various fields such as technology, business, science, or the arts.
