In an HBS podcast, Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter defines innovation

Harvard Business School (HBS) Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter discussed innovation, advanced leadership, and how to make change in an inflexible organization in the HBS podcast series “The Business.” Kanter also told “Business” host Brian Kenny why she has no use for the ‘r-word’: retirement.

“Innovation is putting new ideas into use. It’s not necessarily invention. You don’t necessarily have to have it dreamed up by yourself, but it’s putting it into use, it’s making it happen, that’s innovation,” said Kanter in the HBS interview.
