What Does it Mean to be Innovative?

Introducing new ideas. Developing new methods. Thinking outside of the box. These phrases describe innovation, but what does it truly mean to be innovative?

To be innovative, you must be able to apply your original ideas to positively change, improve, or enhance a process. Innovation doesn’t always mean inventing a new product or idea, but it does mean changing and adapting to achieve better results in the workplace.

CSU-Global’s School of Management and Innovation produces future, innovative employees who will be able to directly apply their knowledge, workplace-relevant skills, and creative minds to construct better business models for improving employee performance, products, and services.
